Sacred Heart Traditional Roman Catholic Church
"Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock, and it shall be opened to you. For every one that asketh, receiveth: and he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened. Or what man is there among you, of whom if his son shall ask bread, will he reach him a stone? Or if he shall ask him a fish, will he reach him a serpent? If you then being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children: how much more will your Father who is in heaven, give good things to them that ask him? All things therefore whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you also to them. For this is the law and the prophets."
Our Dominican chapter has been blessed in its apostolate to be able to continuously practice the virtue of mercy through our corporal works and most importantly our spiritual works. Since the Holy Eucharist and the sacraments are what every human soul desires and needs, the Dominican Priests and Brothers of the Holy Face of Jesus has begun a fund for the payment and needs of Sacred Heart Church. This endeavor is one of prayer and necessity. Our mission is to be a welcoming traditional Catholic community were the faithful can be supported in living and carrying out their Catholic faith and the life that Holy Mother Church has set aside for us. As Saint Antony the Great said in his wisdom, "Our life and our death are with our neighbor. If we gain our brother, we have gained our God." We hope to collect enough funds to repair and maintain Sacred Heart Church, so that we may gain as many of our brothers and sisters in Christ through the Most Holy Eucharist and all of the Sacraments of Our Holy Mother Church.
Breakdown of Estimated Expenses
We would like to thank you for all the donations that have been received during these past five years. It has been a struggle but one that is necessary to preserve the authentic Catholic Faith and Her teachings in these days of diabolical confusion. After many years of prayer, we have received enough funds and a price reduction (initial cost for the church and rectory were $1,250,000.00, then $1,100,000.00 and finally the cost went down to $765,000.00). During Easter week 2012, we were able to obtain a mortgage. The remaining balance on our mortgage is listed below.
Please continue to keep us in your prayers and if you can assist us with fully restoring Sacred Heart Church and maintaining this great gift from God for all traditional Catholics, we would greatly appreciated it.
Repairs are being made. Look below to see some of the progress
