Each year, we as parishioners of Sacred Heart and members of the Diocese of Monterey are asked to commit to our practice of stewardship by pledging to the Annual Ministries Appeal (AMA). This appeal supports (just to name a few) the formation of future deacons and priests, Catechetical Ministries, Catholic Schools, Respect Life, Hispanic and  Migrant Ministry, and Youth Leadership Programs. 264 donors pledged or gave one-time donations totaling $78,327 to the 2017 appeal (2,117 letters were mailed to registered parishioners). 12.47% of our parishioners participated (up from 12.08 % last year). …

Dear Devoted Parishioners,

As we say goodbye to another school year, I’d like to again say thank you for the support you’ve given to our students this past year. How fortunate we are to be a parish school, supported by our community, our parish staff, our deacons, our priests and pastor. Each morning, we begin the day with the flag salute, scripture, prayer and song. We pray for our families and our friends and always remember to pray for you, our church community, as well. The staff and families at Sacred Heart School wish you all a safe and happy summer and hope God’s blessings shine down on you!

Always in Christ,

Connie Rossi-Rains, Principal

Sacred Heart Church has many dedicated parishioners who contribute to the parish through our various ministries. One of these ministries is the ENVIRONMENT COMMITTEE, who with my input, puts great time and effort into decorating the Church for our liturgies. Please respect their dedication by not rearranging the environment.

If you are interested in helping with this ministry, or any of our other ministries (ushergreeters, lectors, Eucharistic ministers, catechists, etc.), please call the parish office at 424-1959 to volunteer.

Thank you for your consideration.


La Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón tiene muchos parroquianos dedicados que contribuyen a la parroquia a través de nuestros diversos ministerios. Uno de estos ministerios es el COMITÉ DE MEDIO AMBIENTE “Decoración”, quien con mi aportación dedica gran esfuerzo y tiempo a decorar la Iglesia para nuestras liturgias. Por favor, respete su dedicación por no reorganizar las decoraciones.

Si usted está interesado en ayudar con este ministerio o cualquiera de nuestros otros ministerios (comité de acojida, lectores, ministros eucarísticos, catequistas, etc.), llame a la oficina parroquial (424-1959) para ser voluntario.

I want to take this opportunity to make you aware of an upcoming change in our Mass schedule. We realized during the Easter Masses that more time is needed between the 7:15 and 9:00 a.m. Masses, especially at special liturgies. To facilitate order and organization, beginning on July 1st, we will be changing the 7:15 a.m. Sunday Mass and the 7:30 a.m. Saturday Mass to 7:00 a.m. All other Mass times will remain the same.

Aprovecho la oportunidad para notificarles de un cambio a nuestros horarios de misa de fin de semana. Tras las experiencias de los últimos meses, hemos llegado a reconocer que en verdad se ocupa más tiempo entre las misas de 7:15 y 9:00 a.m. en domingo. Con el fin de facilitar el orden y organización de estas misas, a partir del primero de julio, las misas de 7:30 a.m. en sábado y 7:15 a.m. en domingo cambiaran a 7:00 a.m. Todas las demás misas seguirán sin cambiar.

Dear Parish Family,


As our school year is nearing the end, I will tell you once again how appreciative I am of your continued support of Sacred Heart School.  Any amount you share with us on the Fifth Sunday Collection is more help than you will ever know. Last year, with just parishioner support, we were able to offer tuition assistance to ten families.  Sacred Heart School has provided a faith-based academically rich education to the Salinas Valley for more than 110 years. Above all, a Catholic faith identity is at the heart of our school; this is what sets us apart from other schools in Salinas. The connection between the parish and school is very strong and we are so grateful for this relationship.  Blessings to all of you in our parish and know that we pray for you always at Sacred Heart School!

Yours In Christ,

Connie Rains, Principal (class of ’64)
