Bible Study

A Bible Study Group has begun at Sacred Heart Church of the First Peoples. It is held in the church rectory and will run every other Tuesday.  The dates will be on the monthly calendar. Everyone is welcome. At each gathering we choose one parable from the Gospel to reflect and share our insights onto the word of God.

House Blessing

Call the office if you wish to have a House Blessing.

Bagged Lunches

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the temporary closure of many of the Inner City outreach programs, Sacred Heart began handing out bagged lunches to the less fortunate who come to our front door. Our program has grown a lot and now we hand out bagged lunches from Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. Much of what we hand out we receive as donations from various groups and indidivuals and we are very grateful for their support. Anyone interested in volunteering with this outreach program is invited to visit the Parish Office and see and discuss the gifts and talents they may bring to this ministry.
