Annual Catholic Appeal Prayer

God, whose love is never-ending,

You care for us in all ways and at all times.

Bless us with the understanding that

Everything we have is a gift from You.

You call us to be stewards of your abundance,

the caretakers of all you have entrusted to us.

Help us to always use your gifts wisely,

Teach us to share them generously.

Send your Holy Spirit to work through us,

Bringing your message to those we serve.

May our faithful stewardship

Through the Annual Catholic Appeal

Bear witness to your enduring love of all creation.

May Mary, Mother of god, be with us

To inspire, guide and protect us.

Oh, Holy Blessed Mother, pray for us.

In Jesus’ name we pray.

Amen

Welcome to Sacred Heart of Jesus!

 

“¡Mi casa es su casa!” ‘My house is your house’

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

and

all of the People of God at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish!

 

Did You Know...

DID YOU KNOW...

...that the first Christians had to navigate through some very serious challenges to the unity of the Church?

Jewish Christians believed that the new Gentile Christians should become ‘Jewish’ first before being accepted as fellow disciples! (Read Acts 15) Each side of the debate had valid viewpoints. But rather than split up the early Church over them, the two ‘sides’ sat down with the Apostles. Together they considered the issues carefully. Together they prayed. Together they sought the guidance of the Holy Spirit.


And in doing so, they left a model for us to copy.


Resolving differences that threaten to cause conflict or division requires patience. It also requires peace and a confidence that God will guide us to a place of concord. And it demands self-control to listen to another point of view without interrupting to shoot it down.


It sounds obvious, but if you’ve ever differed with someone on a significant issue (and who hasn’t?), you know it can be very difficult. Yet, it is possible. The Holy Spirit is here to help us – to “Advocate” -- for the better way of resolving issues. The Holy Spirit’s gifts of Wisdom and Understanding, which the Apostles and the first Christians experienced, are alive in us, too! The Gifts of the Holy Spirit are available to us, especially in issues that threaten to cause discord and division. The Holy Spirit in us produces spiritual fruit: the patience to take the time necessary to think through the difficulties, so that we can respond, rather than react to others; peace to calmly consider other points of view; and self-control to keep our temper and hold our tongue in discussions!


In moments of conflict, we need to pause and ask the Holy Spirit for the grace to listen for and hear His voice speaking through the other person, and try to focus on what unites us, rather than what divides us. Asking the Holy Spirit for the grace to move away from critical thoughts, resentment, or self-centeredness, is always an appropriate prayer in our highly contentious world.


The Holy Spirit moved in and through the lives of those first Christians, so open to Him, and the unity of the Church was preserved. The same Holy Spirit will move in and through our lives when we are open to His guidance and desire to be known as disciples of JESUS by our love for one another! (John 13:35)


"Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful and kindle in them the fire of Your love. Send forth Your Spirit and the whole face of the earth shall be renewed!”
