There’s so much on the horizon!
The Eucharistic Revival is a grassroots, Spirit-led renewal of the Church in the United States from the inside out––not a top-down program! Our broad, deep mission requires time for each individual, parish, and diocese to respond in their own way. Read below about our plans and hopes for the next three years!
WHAT TO EXPECT
June 2022 – June 2023: Year of Diocesan Revival
Invitations into a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ
Online formation and resources for a deeper understanding of the Eucharist
First class relics of Blessed Carlo Acutis and St. Manuel González García go on national tour
Diocesan events across the country with trained Eucharistic Preachers
Eucharistic missionaries raised up at all levels of the Church
June 2023 – July 2024: Year of Parish Revival

The entire Church in the U.S. will go on mission to share the gift of our Eucharistic Lord with our local communities and beyond! This will not be accomplished in any one single way. We encourage you to enter into this missionary spirit with your own unique charism and talents.

Several months ago, after meeting with numerous groups of parishioners, our parish submitted a synod report to the Diocese. The Diocese has now compiled a report to send to the USCCB. Please follow the attached link to read this report.
Having just celebrated Corpus Christi and the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart , we need to maintain our focus on the Eucharist. Blessed Carlo Acutis who died of leukemia at 15 and was beatified in 2020, created a beautiful accounting of Eucharistic miracles over the centuries. Please use the link below to read about these beautiful miracles.
Thank you all for your participation in the Synod process. Over 225 parishioners participated in 18 different groups. The summarized report with the major themes was submitted to the Diocese on April 6. The link to this report may be found below. The other links provide a history of the process. We will now be working to implement the common suggestions.
DO YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ANNULMENT PROCESS?
Are you or someone you know divorced? Do you want to learn more about annulments and how to apply? At Sacred Heart Parish, we have three certified nullity ministers: Father Raj, Deacon Joe Bueti and Muriel Rabideau and any of them can help answer your questions. Whether or not you are Catholic, we are happy to help you to navigate this often misunderstood process. If you would like more information, please call the Parish office at 928-445-3141 and ask to speak to one of the people listed above. You can also find information on the Diocese of Phoenix’s Tribunal website at dphx.org/tribunal.

Just a reminder that a popular current scam all over the country is to send a text or email that purportedly comes from a priest (usually the pastor) asking for monetary help (usually purchase and donation of gift cards for a specified “cause”). Please be assured that no priest from Sacred Heart would ever contact you in that way asking for financial support. The best thing to do is not respond at all, and block the phone number or email. Parish staff has reported this to the authorities several times, but these people are almost impossible to catch. Please share this information with friends and relatives. The best way to foil these scams is to not even respond. Thank you

We continue to livestream the 9AM Mass on Sundays. Mass can be viewed directly on the Parish website. Remember that, if you are able to attend Mass in person, the weekly obligation to attend Mass was fully reinstated on July 1. If you cannot be physically present, please go to the website just before 9AM. From the main page, look under “Watch Mass Online” and select “Click Here for Livestream”. You will then be able to watch Mass live. It is highly recommended that, if you cannot physically attend Mass, that you watch the live Mass rather than a recorded version.
We are now offering the option to watch the recorded Mass, for the most recent week’s Mass only. The video will be overwritten every week. To watch the recorded Mass, select “Click Here for Livestream” and then select “View Most Recent Mass.” Please keep in mind that, depending on staff availability to post the Mass, it may not be immediately available.
We understand that the music can be sporadic coming through the livestream; however, the readings, homily and the Mass itself comes through very clearly using this method rather than Facebook. In addition, this eliminates the need to go through Facebook, which many parishioners did not want to do. The livestream is not perfect, but we are doing the best that we can.
Weekday Mass will be live-streamed to Facebook generally only on Mondays and Thursdays starting the week of July 26.
Thank you for your continued support.
