The Vision of the
Sacred Heart Church
"The Sacred Heart Church is a
community of disciples
passionate about proclaiming Christ and
bringing people to a closer relationship with Him
so as to experience
the beauty of His presence in their own lives
and to respond to his call to serve and
transform the society in which we live.
Our identity as followers of Christ leads us to offer our talents and resources, to joyfully celebrate the mysteries of salvation and so grow in our discipleship to the Lord."
A Missionary Church
The very nature of the Church is to be missionary.
Our Community expresses this missionary dimension by our prayer and solidarity:
* with the most needy peoples of the world;
* with those societies or human groups that have not received the Gospel message; and
* with those who having known Christ have left the Church. The month of October has a special missionary meaning:
We pray for the spreading of the Gospel and give our financial support to the missionary endeavours of the Church.
We promote missionary values that may help us bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our own families and to our places of work.
