Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained by the world. - James 1:27

About Sacred Heart Parish

Our parish here at Sacred Heart in downtown Salinas is a group of people trying to be disciples of Jesus Christ and His new Way. We are diverse, inclusive, reverent, somewhat boisterous, very aliveā€¦ and searching for God and God’s will in the Catholic tradition.

The Sacred Heart is a symbol of love, charity, joy, understanding, happiness, piety, and sorrow.

It is recognized as the key organ of the human body, one that coordinates the intellect with the emotions. The emblem for devotions to the Sacred Heart is a flaming heart, surmounted by a Cross and enclosed in the Crown of Thorns. As an attribute, the flaming heart generally suggests fervor: the pierced heart, empathy and compassion.
