Please storm the Heavens with your prayers now. Our Pastor, Fr. Daryl, has become very ill today. There will be a public rosary today (June 19th) at 4:00 PM at the Church for him. Please share with as many people as you can. Thank you!
The Parish is asking that people respect the hospital's request for no visitors and no calls at this time while Fr. Daryl rests and undergoes tests. We can confirm that he has had a stroke. We will keep everyone updated on Facebook and the parish website.
Please join the Sacred Heart Youth Group for a Novena for our Pastor, Fr. Daryl, starting tomorrow (June 20th) at 4:00 PM in the Church (or wherever you may be.) We'll be praying together for 9 days in a row, just as the early Christians did for 9 days in the Upper Room while they waited from the time of Jesus' Ascension to the time of the Descent of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost.
"St. Jude, you witnessed the healing power of our Lord Jesus. You saw his compassion for the sick and dying. You yourself touched the sick, shared the sorrows of the mournful, and encouraged the despairing. You received this authority and healing power to work wonders, to cure the incurable, to make people whole. We ask you to intercede with our brother, Jesus, to send His saving grace to heal the sickness and suffering of our pastor and spiritual father, Fr. Daryl, to uplift his despondent spirits, and to instill hope in his heart and in ours.

Tonight, as Fr. Daryl was getting ready for the Youth Mass, he had an incident in the Sacristy. He was taken to the ER to be checked out and Fr. Ralph came in to substitute at the Youth Mass. Fr. Daryl is doing much better, but is still undergoing tests. Please keep him in your prayers for a speedy recovery. This will most likely mean he will have to postpone tomorrow night's Eucharist talk in his Catechism series. - Deb

Update on Fr. Daryl: Fr. Daryl is home at the Rectory now and resting. Nothing alarming was found during tests. Thank you all so much for your prayers and please continue to pray for him, as the father of our Parish family, as he continues his recovery. - Deb

SACRED HEART OF JESUS MINISTRY
June is the month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Dear Members of Sacred Heart Parish:
Our Parish is blessed with a monthly devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus on every First Friday after the 8:30 AM Mass. We encourage all to attend this beautiful devotion.
In addition to the monthly First Friday Devotion, our Pastor, Fr. Daryl, has given permission to establish a full parish ministry specifically dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
The purpose of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Ministry will be to build a greater understanding of and a deeper devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus at any and all times. This will be accomplished by:
• Prayer and support from the entire community of Sacred Heart Parish and it’s many ministries
• A display of the 12 Promises of our Lord permanently installed near the entrance of the church on the inside block wall
• A permanent display of a beautifully framed image, selected by Fr. Daryl, of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the church
• Placing a larger statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the church
• Inviting more parishioners to participate in the First Friday Sacred Heart Devotion
• Encouraging more parishioners to display an image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in their homes
There is a need for a few, dedicated, core-team members who are willing to commit their time and talent to help oversee this ministry.
There will be a table set up in the Mall area after Mass for more information. There will also be a sign-up sheet for those who prayerfully wish to be a part of this ministry. Small pictures of the Sacred Heart of Jesus with the 12 promises of our Lord will be available for a small donation.
For anyone wishing to donate to this effort, checks can be made out to “Sacred Heart of Jesus Ministry” and dropped off at the Parish office.
-- Fr. Daryl Olds, CMF
The Sacred Heart of Jesus Ministry is seeking to purchase a life-size statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus for installation in our parish. Donations going toward this purchase are most appreciated. Please prayerfully consider donating - we hope at least 500 of our parishioners will be able to contribute $20. Checks can be made payable to: Sacred Heart Church with "Sacred Heart of Jesus" in the memo line.

"We have a Pope!"
Pope Francis (Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina) is the first Jesuit and the first from the New World and not Europe. Please join us in praying for him during this exciting time.
Pope Francis' First Words:
Brothers and sisters, good evening.
You all know that the duty of the Conclave was to give a bishop to Rome. It seems that my brother Cardinals have gone almost to the ends of the earth to get him… but here we are. I thank you for the welcome that has come from the diocesan community of Rome.
First of all I would like to say a prayer pray for our Bishop Emeritus Benedict XVI. Let us all pray together for him, that the Lord will bless him and that our Lady will protect him.
Glory to the Father…
And now let us begin this journey, the Bishop and the people, this journey of the Church of Rome which presides in charity over all the Churches, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world that there might be a great sense of brotherhood. My hope is that this journey of the Church that we begin today, together with the help of my Cardinal Vicar, may be fruitful for the evangelization of this beautiful city.
And now I would like to give the blessing. But first I want to ask you a favour. Before the Bishop blesses the people I ask that you would pray to the Lord to bless me – the prayer of the people for their Bishop. Let us say this prayer – your prayer for me – in silence.
[The Protodeacon announced that all those who received the blessing, either in person or by radio, television or by the new means of communication receive the plenary indulgence in the form established by the Church. He prayed that Almighty God protect and guard the Pope so that he may lead the Church for many years to come, and that he would grant peace to the Church throughout the world.]
[Immediately afterwards Pope Francis gave his first blessing Urbi et Orbi – To the City and to the World.]
I will now give my blessing to you and to the whole world, to all men and women of good will.
Brothers and sisters, I am leaving you. Thank you for your welcome. Pray for me and I will be with you again soon... We will see one another soon.
Tomorrow I want to go to pray to the Madonna, that she may protect Rome.
Good night and sleep well!
FR. RICHARD (WOZ) WOZNIAK, CMF
A NOTE TO OUR PARISHIONERS:
Hi, folks! I'm well settled in at our Retirement Center here (north of Long Beach, Calif.)
I've taken to it like a fish to water, even while I truly miss all of you, and everything about Sacred Heart.
There's a good Claretian community here, about fifteen of us... a large, beautiful chapel where we pray and celebrate Eucharist together daily... and good meals, with quite a variety of foods... fifteen acres of beautiful grounds: a plethora of large trees, bright flowers, and large stretches of vibrant, green lawns.
There's time to absorb the beauty of nature here, time to pray, time to read, time to walk, and time to just be.
This will be my last home until the final, Eternal Home.
God's special blessings upon each and every one of you!
- Father Woz
Fr. Woz would like to profusely thank all the parishioners that were at his Farewell Celebration on December 16th and for all your beautiful cards and gifts. Also, deep thanks to the many that would like to have attended, but were unable.
I will keep you and all of our Sacred Heart parishioners in prayer. It’s been a great blessing to me to have ministered here for nine years. Au Revoir.
NEW ADDRESS FOR FR. WOZ:
c/o Claretian Retirement Center
18127 S. Alameda St.

OF HIS HOLINESS BENEDICT XVI,
ON HIS WAIVER of the MINISTRY of the BISHOP of ROME,
the SUCCESSOR of St. PETER
As per our Diocesan offices, here is the text of Pope Benedict XVI's announcement from today:
I have convoked you to this Consistory, not only for the three canonizations, but also to communicate to you a decision of great importance for the life of the Church. After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry. I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering. However, in today’s world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me. For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, entrusted to me by the Cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a Conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is.
Dear Brothers, I thank you most sincerely for all the love and work with which you have supported me in my ministry and I ask pardon for all my defects. And now, let us entrust the Holy Church to the care of Our Supreme Pastor, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and implore his holy Mother Mary, so that she may assist the Cardinal Fathers with her maternal solicitude, in electing a new Supreme Pontiff. With regard to myself, I wish to also devotedly serve the Holy Church of God in the future through a life dedicated to prayer.”
