Celebrate Lent

Did you know that the word Lent means “Spring.”  Come celebrate this sacred church season with the Religious Education classes in the church Undercroft from 10:15 to 11:15.  We will explore Scripture with readings and crafts.

Hark at the Heart

The Shrine’s Religious Education classes celebrate Advent and Christmas in this annual event held in the church between 10:30 and 11:00. All are welcome!  The children perform songs, skits and recitations putting everyone in the Christmas spirit.  A light reception follows in the Undercroft.

A Nativity Story

The Shrine of the Sacred Heart in cooperation with GIG Community Theater & Couples for Christ Present:

A Nativity Story

This Christmas, let us all exalt and celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ through a marvelous play of the Nativity!

The play is written by Gregg DeGuzman, along with parishioners Lourdes and Leo White.  It tells the story from the Annunciation to the Birth of Jesus. Parishioners and friends of the parish not only fill the acting roles, but also have come together to build the sets, sew costumes, publish a program and sell ads to support the associated costs of the production. This is a heartwarming community effort befitting the story of Jesus’ birth!

The professionally directed play will be performed on Sunday, December 15th at 4:00 p.m. and again at 7:30 p.m.
