Sacred Heart YMT Prepares for Living Stations

Members of the Sacred Heart Youth Ministry Team (YMT) rehearse the reenactment of the Passion of Our Lord.  Their live presentation of the Stations of the Cross will begin at 2:00 pm in Sacred Heart Church on Good Friday, April 22, 2011.

Sacred Heart Youth Ministry Team, a group of Catholic teen leaders in our community, draw together their unique God-given gifts to enliven and strengthen the faith of their peers and encourage each other to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.

All youth in grades 7 and up are invited to take part in the Youth Ministry Team.  How is God calling you to use your gifts?  Come and see!  For more information contact Cassandra Spellman at 274-1363 or email at   cassandra.spellman@gmail.com

Holy Thursday: Liturgy of the Lord’s Supper

Palm Sunday Message

In today’s Gospel, Matthew emphasizes the psychological pain which can come when all of your friends turn from you.  One of Jesus’ closest friends betrayed him to his enemies.  Another denied that he even knew him.  All of his companions fell asleep when he really needed their support.  And finally after swearing that they would never disown him, all except a few women, fled from the scene.   As you receive and take home your palm branches, place them where they will be visible to you each day as reminders that you will not betray, deny or disown Jesus through both good and bad times!


Walk with Mary During Holy Week!

Sacred Heart teens have created a Prayer Labyrinth experience for our Parish.  You are welcome to “Walk with Mary During Holy Week”,     a prayer experience, will be available throughout the parking lot area from Palm Sunday through Holy Saturday morning.  This is  a fine way to reflect during this Holy Week.


Book Group to Meet 4/27/11

“SPIRITUAL JOURNEYS” is the theme for our book group which will meet on Wednesday, April 27th at 10:15am in the rectory or at 6:00pm at the Brunswick Library.  Join us as we discuss SARAH’S KEY by Tatiana deRosnay.
