Hello Sacred Heart Parishioners. It is with great joy and anticipation for the coming of the Lord that I write you. This year's Christmas card is included in the video below, along with a "walk-through" video tour of the church construction (one of your gifts). While it is a little longer than other videos, there is much information in it, as well as great video and explanations of different aspects of the enhancement. I know your time is busy, but my hope and prayer is that you watch the video in its entirety.


Special Announcement from Fr. Pat

Hello Everyone! I want to share some exciting news with you. We have received a restricted gift, from a donor who wishes to remain anonymous, to finish Phase II (Narthex) of our Church Enhancement Project. Yes – I was taken aback myself – and very grateful to say the least. It should be noted, no money is being used from any SHOJ accounts.

That’s the first piece of good news, the second is this…We are going to begin construction soon, and it will be completed in the same time frame as the Nave enhancement. It just so happens all of our construction folks, as well as the architect, can still do phase two along with the Nave simultaneously. This should not affect any of our current Mass Times and “other activities” that occur in the Church building. There will be some mild nuanced changes and they will be communicated when necessary. Target date to be back in the church is the weekend of March 4-5, 2023. God is good!!

Time Lapse Renovation Update


We are now four weeks in to our enhancement project! Check out this time lapse video showing all the work done this last month including:

  • Stations and other fragile items removed from the Nave
  • Pews removed and stored for our lighting contractor to have better access
  • Altar, Ambo and Baptismal font moved/crated for safe keeping
  • Scaffolding built on Sanctuary floor to access ceiling and back wall
  • Acoustical fabric removed
  • Sanctuary ceiling tile taken down to be be repainted (see photos below)
  • Trim work and Niches being worked on
