Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish strives to provide a comprehensive faith formation program that represents the teachings of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to form a community of faith by promoting a Catholic way of life through gospel values, prayer, and commitment to God, our church and our community. We support all parish members in their lifelong process of growing in faith by planning, implementing, communicating and encouraging participation in ongoing opportunities for Catholic education and formation with the ultimate goal of putting people in communion and intimacy with Jesus Christ.

Your child’s safety is always a priority.

This training session focuses on specific ways to make and maintain a safe environment for all children. Our teachers also have the opportunity to attend enrichment/training classes offered by the Diocesan Pastoral Formation Institute throughout the year.
