 SACRED HEART OFFICE HOURS

8:00 AM to 1:00 PM Monday through Thursday


 

As we are facing a rise in COVID 19 infections. We must remain vigilant in practicing safety protocols such as hand sanitizing, social distancing, and wearing masks to cover both the mouth and nose. In addition to these, the church will also be adhering to the following for those attending mass in person:

1)      The capacity for those attending mass in person is now reduced from 33% to 25% - please understand that you may not be able to attend if the church has reached capacity.

2)      Face masks must be properly fitted to your face and properly worn so as to cover the face and mouth. Face masks are to be worn at all times even for those proclaiming the Word.

3) Windows and doors will remain open during worship where possible to allow for natural ventilation.

4)      If you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms, please refrain from church attendance and seek a COVID19-test at your earliest convenience.

5)      The duration of each liturgy will not exceed 1 hour and twenty minutes. 


 

In both human and divine relationships, there can be no romance without a reverent listening to the other. When we make room in our lives for silence, the heaven and earth within us find each other. Then the Word of God is able to put down deep roots. These listening roots sense our desire for bonding with the Holy One.

VACCINE AGAINST COVID-19 

I wish to take the opportunity to assure you that the position of the Roman Catholic Church as to the vaccines against COVID-19 is that, in our present circumstances, persons who are eligible and able to receive the vaccine should do so willingly. This is to protect the health of the recipient, the health of all those with whom the recipient comes into contact and especially to protect the most vulnerable for whom infection of this virus could mean serious illness, hospitalization or worse. In this regard, receiving the vaccine promotes the Common Good by protecting an individual’s health, promoting public health and saving lives”.

 Excerpt of statement made by the Most Reverend Patrick C. Pinder, S.T.D., C.M.G., Archbishop of Nassau

 


 

 

 Pope Francis' Urbi et orbi meditation

 Pope Francis meditated on the calming of the storm from the Gospel of Mark during the prayer service over which he presided on the steps of St Peter's Basilica on Friday evening. Here is the full text.

“When evening had come” (Mk 4:35). The Gospel passage we have just heard begins like this. For weeks now it has been evening. Thick darkness has gathered over our squares, our streets and our cities; it has taken over our lives, filling everything with a deafening silence and a distressing void, that stops everything as it passes by; we feel it in the air, we notice in people’s gestures, their glances give them away. We find ourselves afraid and lost. Like the disciples in the Gospel we were caught off guard by an unexpected, turbulent storm. We have realized that we are on the same boat, all of us fragile and disoriented, but at the same time important and needed, all of us called to row together, each of us in need of comforting the other. On this boat… are all of us. Just like those disciples, who spoke anxiously with one voice, saying “We are perishing” (v. 38), so we too have realized that we cannot go on thinking of ourselves, but only together can we do this.
