Pastoral Letter on the Sacred Heart of Jesus
"And so I am inviting all Catholics in this archdiocese, in all our families, religious communities, parishes, hospitals, schools, and institutions, to focus on the significance of this sign of the sacrificial and compassionate love of Christ, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and to make devotion to the Sacred Heart a vital part of our life of faith." - Cardinal Thomas Collins

A WORD FROM THE PASTOR
Praised be Jesus Christ. Now and forever. Amen.
Praised be Jesus Christ. Now and forever. Amen. Mary, Virgin Most Prudent, Pray for Us.
Thank You and God bless. We keep one another in prayer.
With love and a prayer
We may pray this Act of Spiritual Communion when we are not able
to be physically present at Mass:
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself.
If wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen

Living the Gospel by providing for those in need
“Without you, ShareLife could not fulfill its mission to live the Gospel by providing for those in need. Together we are making a real difference! My prayer is that we may continue to respond to God's love by going forth from ourselves to seek the good of others.”
— Cardinal Thomas Collins
