Form of Spiritual Communion, by St. Alphonsus Liguori
My JESUS, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things and I desire to receive You in my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
The Southwest is known for our warm welcomes and heartfelt hospitality! Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish has been extending this same warm welcome for over 140 year, since pioneer missionary, Fr. Antonio Jouvenceau, came to Tombstone, to minister to the need of those flocking into the area following the discovery of rich silver deposits!
Although the popular concept of Tombstone, largely shaped by Hollywood, portrays our community as centered in the bars and gambling dens of Allen Street and shadowed by violence, there is another and much more enduring story, of pioneer men, women and families, who sought to build a lasting community, founded on the values of the Gospel!
That is our story, and it is a story which continues to be written, not in historic re-enactments, but in the hearts and lives of people who call Tombstone home.
Our Parish is the “Mother Church” of Cochise County and has been instrumental in planting new parishes in the surrounding area. We continue to be part of the global Mission of the Church, and have entered our third century filled with the joy and the hope of those who are experiencing new life in Christ!
We would cordially invite you to experience that new life with us, and to know that the One who extends the invitation, “My house is your house!” is, in fact, the Lord!
Looking forward to welcoming you!
FR. GREG ADOLF and FR. ROBERT NESKE
all of the People of God at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish!
DID YOU KNOW...
...that our Sacred Heart Float won the "Doc Holliday Award" in this year’s Helldorado Parade?
This is the second year that our entry in the Parade took top honors! Congratulations to all who helped to prepare and ride the float – including Sister Joellen Kohlmann, and, of course, our Father Rob – in the authentic garb of the French missionaries, who served the Territory in the 19th century! We have so much to be proud of, as a Parish community!
AND, more congratulations are in order! Last Saturday, the 46th annual Arizona Rosary Celebration took place in St. Augustine Cathedral in Tucson.
As part of this impressive Diocesan-wide gathering, altar servers from throughout the Diocese are invited to attend and be honored for their service. Our Helena and Rose Spoto represented Sacred Heart at the celebration, and were selected from among the 100+ altar servers present to be the Bishop’s servers for the celebration!
The Knights of Columbus, who sponsor this very important annual event, also honor Catholic families – Pete and Denise Spoto and the girls, were the family chosen to represent Sacred Heart this year! Congratulations!
The Arizona Rosary Celebration – held on consecutive days in the Dioceses of Tucson and Phoenix – is funded, in part, by a souvenir program, with ‘ads’ from the various Parishes and ministries throughout the State.
We have a very nice half-page ad (donated) in the program, with a photo of our original church, and the caption: “Mother Church of Cochise County since 1881”!
All in all, we, at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish have had a great October! Let’s keep it going!
