Dear Sacred Heart Parish Community, “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ” (Rom 1: 7). My official name is Robert Sullivan, but I am commonly known as Fr. Robby or Fr. Rob. A native of the Diocese of Monterey, I was born in Santa Cruz and grew up in Watsonville. I am from Irish and Mexican descent, and I am the youngest of four children. From my parents and siblings, I learned the value of faith and the development of a relationship with God, which laid the foundation for my vocation.

Following graduation from the University of Notre Dame in 2004, I joined the Congregation of Holy Cross, a religious community dedicated to being educators in the faith. However, after discerning that I was not called to religious life, I returned to Watsonville, and two years later, became a seminarian in our diocese. …

Dear Sacred Heart Parish Community,

A greeting of peace and joy in our Lord Jesus Christ to each of you.

Allow me to introduce myself as a new member of this beautiful community. My name is Louie Bellen. I was born on August 4, 1985 (Feast of St. John Maria Vianney, my favorite Saint). I was raised and educated in the Philippines. I am the sixth of eight siblings and was raised by my relatives from the age of twelve, so I have been a man on the move from a very early age. After high school I entered a religious community and was formed by the Rogationists of the Heart of Jesus through temporary vows and a year and a half of theology. The community aspect of religious life continues to be a high value for me. …
