Sacred Heart of Jesus Church - Serving the Communities of South Bend and Lakeville, Indiana
Today [December 2] begins the season of Advent. At the heart of this season is a call to holiness, a call to look at what needs transforming in our lives and in our world.

May we enter this Holy Season learning God’s ways and walking in God’s paths with humility and an ardent love that will worthily prepare us for Christmas.

This is also the beginning of the new Church Year and the Cycle C Readings.

Almighty ever-living God, Whose will is to restore all things in Your beloved Son, the King of the universe, grant, we pray, that the whole creation, set free from slavery, may render Your majesty service and ceaselessly proclaim Your praise.

We celebrate the Feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe - the last Sunday of the Church calendar year and the end of the Cycle B Readings. 

Next weekend, December 1 and 2, begins the Season of Advent and Readings from Cycle C.
Fr. Honoratus Mwageni was at our parish last weekend to celebrate our Masses and talk about his Mission in Rwanda. If you were not able to give at that time, you may place your donation in an envelope marked “Mission Weekend” and place it in the Offertory basket at the next Mass you attend.

Please be as generous as you can
