Welcome to Our Lady of the Sacred Heart
On behalf of our parish family, welcome to Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Parish. Our parish began through the efforts of Father Nelson Baker in 1920. Until 1949, our parish was a mission of Our Lady of Victory Basilica in Lackawanna, New York. At the present time, Father Baker has been declared “Servant of God” the first step toward canonization.
Currently, our parish has over 1200 families and is involved in many ministries and activities. If you are interested in learning more or becoming a part of our parish family please call the parish office.
God Bless You,
Father Adolph Kowalczyk

Christ Renews His Parish …
Upcoming Weekends - Mark Your Calendars
Women's Weekend ~ October 13 & 14
Men's Weekend ~ October 19 & 20
For years I was approached to attend the Christ Renews Women's Weekend and I always said No. l felt I could not take the time for a retreat, I was a busy working wife and mother. In 2016 I was asked again but for reasons I could not explain then, I said Yes. I had such a strong pull to go. Now I understand that call was from God and I am so grateful I accepted. At the weekend I got to meet so many terrific people. It was so amazing to finally be introduced to that person I sat next to in the pew for all those years, but never knew! Christ Renews continues to be a great way for me to meet so many wonderful people and stay connected to our parish. Please consider attending The Men’s or Women’s Retreat this fall. It may be just what God is calling you to do. - Parishioner, Colleen Coughlin
Do you go to Mass and forget what the readings were? Do you
forget what the homily was about? When you say the Rosary does your mind wander all over the place? Is reading the Bible more like reading the telephone book? Do you feel that your prayer life has dried up and you ask
yourself "why pray at all"?
The great Carmelite spiritual writer, St. John of the Cross tells us that these are signs that God is leading us into a deeper relationship with Him. It is called contemplation. We meet Monday evenings at 7:30 pm in the Chapel.
