Sacred Heart of Jesus Church - Serving the Communities of South Bend and Lakeville, Indiana

Summer Mass ScheduleBeginning Monday, June 24th, there will be no daily Masses at St. Jude due to work being done on the inside of the church. We ask that St. Jude weekday Mass attendees go to Sacred Heart where there will be the SAME 8:00 A.M. MASS TIMES TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY (AND FIRST SATURDAYS) There will also be a Monday evening Mass at 5:30 at Sacred Heart. All Mass intentions for this special time have been carried over to Sacred Heart. WEEKEND MASS TIMES REMAIN THE SAME AT ST. JUDE BUT MASS WILL BE CELEBRATED IN THE KELLER ROOM.

Starting Sunday, June 30th there will be an added 11:00 a.m. Mass at Sacred Heart on all Sundays until the renovation is done at St. Jude. This is for the convenience of all who may find the steps leading to the Keller Room prohibitive. Sacred Heart is handicap accessible.

We need Lectors, Ushers, Altar Servers and Cantors for this new 11:00 Mass. Sacred Heart parishioners, please volunteer on the sheet posted on the bulletin board and St. Jude parishioners, please contact the Parish Office at St. Jude.

Mass intentions are available for the new 11:00 a.m. Masses at Sacred Heart. Please call the Parish Office for dates.


New Cry RoomMany of you have noticed the window that was installed in the Confessional Room. The intent was to add a small cry room to benefit parents with small children. A curtain was also installed to maintain the privacy of the Confessional. The curtain can be easily raised by the pull of a string, and will lower with a slight tug on the string. It would be appropriate if the ushers would keep only two folding chairs in the room for weekend Masses.
