"THIS IS THE LORD'S PLACE AND THE WAY TO HEAVEN"
An appropriate paraphrase of the Psalm to describe SACRED HEART PARISH, which has so diligently served the immigrant Germans and their descendants in this community since 1870, and then to be joined by the immigrant Italians and their descendants since 1969, from the original site on 5th and Broadway. Spiritual service is now rendered to all who come to worship the Lord at Sacred Heart.

LENT - THIS WEEK:
- FRIDAY - STATION OF THE CROSS AT 6:30, FOLLOWED BY LOW MASS IN THE EXTRA-ORDINARY FORM.
- SUNDAY - MASS AT 9:00 IN ENGLISH
- MASS AT 10:00 IN ITALIAN
- MASS AT 11:30 IN LATIN
- FIRST COMMUNION CLASSES BEGIN ON SUNDAY, MARCH 1, IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE 9:00 AM MASS. Please see the bulletin for details.
Lent began with Ash Wednesday. The Lenten season is important in the life of the Church as we prepare to celebrate the mysteries of our Redemption through a season of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
CONFESSION - Lent is an excellent time to make a good confession. Catholics are obligated to confess their grave sins (in number and kind) once a year and to receive Holy Communion worthily at least once year during the Easter Season. I encourage everyone to take advantage of our confession times. I will make myself more available for confessions.
FRIDAY STATIONS OF THE CROSS AND MASS -
On Fridays we recall the Passion of the Lord. Each Lenten Friday, we will pray the Stations of the Cross, beginning at 6:30 PM, followed by the Mass of the day. I grew up with the Stations of the Cross of St. Alphonsus Liguori. This year we will use his meditations on the Stations. The first Friday in Lent, we will have Mass in English and the following Friday we will have low Mass in Latin. We will rotate back and forth. We won’t have music for these services, but there is something about a quiet Mass and sacred silence that is equally attractive. Please check the weekly bulletin for the schedule.
If you wish to have a mass offered for the intentions of a person living or the repose of the soul of a beloved deceased, please call the office at 541-4654 Monday thru Thursday 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. or send your request to Sacred Heart Church, 2733 Massachusetts Ave., Cinti., OH 45225. The standard offering for the Mass remains $5.00.
Weddings. We have had a number of requests for weddings- in the Ordinary and Extra-Ordinary Forms of the Roman Rite- at Sacred Heart in the past few months. We have had very few weddings here the past few years, but we are happy to welcome those wishing to be married in the Church here at Sacred Heart. Celebrating weddings here is a great way to connect people with the parish and to bring them to our beautiful church. If you know of someone looking to get married and or searching for a home in a parish, please send them our way. The parish WEDDING GUIDELINES can be found here.
