--Stations of the Cross and Soup Supper – We will pray the Stations of the Cross Friday evening, March 23rd, at 7:00 pm in the Church. Join us this Friday at 6:15 pm for a simple Soup Supper in the Activity Center before the Stations. This week’s supper will be hosted by the Knights of Columbus.

--EUCHARISTIC ADORATION – HOLY THURSDAY AFTER MASS – You are invited to join us for Adoration after Mass on Holy Thursday evening. As is tradition, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will take place in the back of the sanctuary until midnight. There is a signup sheet provided in the narthex to ensure that at least two people are available for adoration until midnight. Matthew 26:40 tells us on the day before Jesus died for us, He asked Peter, “So, could you not stay awake with me one hour?” Come away from the noise of daily life this Lent and sit in the holy presence of our God.

--The Parish extends its congratulations to the families of Emily Jo Foltz, Luke James Sigler, Ryleigh Ann Walker, and John Carter Grewe, who were recently baptized.

--Seder Meal – Everyone is invited to our popular Seder Meal, scheduled for Wednesday, March 28th, at 6pm in the Activity Center. The Seder meal is a re-enactment of the Passover meal that is full of Jewish tradition. So it's based on the meal Jesus shared with his disciples, what we now call the Last Supper. We'll have roast lamb, haroseth and other traditional items. It's a great way to start your Holy Week observances and is for our youth AND adults. Contact Mike with any questions (412-7708).

--Parish Men's Group –

  • **Throughout the early Church, Christians believed that the Holy Spirit was so present to their community that they could call on the name of Jesus and people could be healed.
  • **Flash forward to our day. How many of us believe we believers can pray with one another and through that prayer to Jesus we can be healed? Somewhere along the way, we’ve lost that expectation that God can powerfully touch us in this life including being healed from illnesses and infirmities.

Welcome to Sacred Heart

We also hope that you will share your special gifts within the community. Your prayers, your presence and your talents are most welcome. Parish registration forms are in the back of the church or may be obtained at the Parish Office.

About Sacred Heart

Sacred Heart Church began in 1874. By 1945, when the Navy came to Lee Field, the Mass schedule increased from 3 to 5 Masses which ended up being held at the Clay Theatre in Green Cove Springs because the church started to fall apart.

May 1946 ground broke for the greatly needed new church; on land adjacent to the old church. Navy Personnel volunteered their labor toward the building of the new church; and the old church was being used as a parish hall and classroom where Sunday school classes and children's choir were being held.

In 1994, Fr. Donal Sullivan, a native of Ireland, was appointed pastor of Sacred Heart. In 1999, work began to build another new sanctuary to accommodate the growing Catholic population.

The new Sacred Heart located at 7190 State Highway 17 in Fleming Island was built and on May 13, 2001 the dedication was presided over by Bishop John J. Snyder.



We celebrate the following categories of ministry here at Sacred Heart: 

  • Liturgical
  • Pastoral
  • Social Services
  • Stewardship
  • Spanish

Compelled by the Gospel we the parish family of Sacred Heart, promote and support Christian Life by serving our parish and community through the celebration of the sacraments, educational programs, and other parish ministries. 


"Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.'"  - John 6:35

The celebration of Mass is an act of the whole assembly gathered for worship. In the Mass, the Church is joined to the action of Christ.  We are joined to this divine action through Baptism, which incorporates us into the risen Christ.

You will find Mass schedules for ordinary time and holidays and Mass Readings for the particular day from United States Conference of Catholic Bishops website. 


Stewardship is a way of life. For Christians who follow in the way of the Lord Jesus, stewardship is an expression of discipleship. When we recognize that God is the origin of all life, the giver of everything that we have and are, and the source of our freedom and giftedness; the healthy person responds by thanking God through prayer, by serving God and God's people through ministry, and by sharing our financial resources with those in need.

Stewardship is a way of life based upon conversion of heart.
