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
PARISH MISSION STATEMENT
“We the parish family of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart strive to honor God
by faithfully living the Gospel through acts of faith, hope and charity
while drawing our strength from the Eucharist, the source and center of our faith.”
Sadly, New York State is the Abortion Capital of our nation, with a rate of 29.6 abortions for every 1,000 women of reproductive age. That’s more than twice the national average.
New York legalized abortion in 1970, three years before the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Roe vs. Wade. Abortion is legal here for any reason up to 24 weeks of pregnancy, and any time after that if the mother’s life is at risk. So even if Roe were to be overruled, the vast majority of abortions in our state would continue to be legal and available.
The Governor and the Democratic leadership in the New York State Legislature want to go even further, and make abortion less safe and more expansive than it is now. They’ve promised to enact the so-called “Reproductive Health Act” early in 2019. This bill would: • Allow non-doctors to perform abortions. • Allow abortions for any reason in the third trimester of pregnancy right up to a mother’s due date. • Remove all criminal penalties for abortion, even if it was contrary to the mother’s choice, such as the intentional targeting of an unborn child in an act of violence. • Remove our state’s protections for infants accidentally born alive in the course of an abortion.
This extremism goes far beyond Roe vs. Wade!
