This year, Sacred Heart Church will celebrate Catechetical Sunday on September 23, 2018. The 2018 theme will be “Enlisting Witnesses for Jesus Christ.” Those whom the community has designated to serve as catechists will be called forth to be commissioned for their ministry during Mass at 11 a.m. (English) and Mass at 1 p.m. (Spanish).
Catechetical Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each person plays, by virtue of Baptism, in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel. Catechetical Sunday is an opportunity for all to rededicate themselves to this mission as a community of faith in Sacred Heart Parish, Salinas.

Este año, la Iglesia Sagrado Corazón celebra el día de la catequesis el domingo el 23 de septiembre 2018. El tema de este año es “Los testigos de Jesucristo.” Aquellos que la comunidad a designado al servicio como catequistas serán llamados a ser enviados para su ministerio durante la Misa a las 11:00 (Inglés) y la Misa en 1:00 p.m. (español). Este domingo es una oportunidad maravillosa para reflexionar sobre el sacramento de bautismo del cada uno de nosotros, por virtud del bautismo, y compartimos la fe y somos testigos del Evangelio. Es una oportunidad para que todos puedan dedicarse a esta misión como una comunidad de fe en la Parroquia Sagrado Corazón.

Last week was an especially painful one for our Church. Even as the continuing accusations against Cardinal McCarrick brought ongoing pain to us all, the revelation of the history of abuses in Pennsylvania brings fresh anguish to the entire Church. The abuse of even one of God’s children is a crime and a sin against God.
We recognize that children and vulnerable adults are a sacred trust, given to us by God to protect and to nourish. Abuse of a child or vulnerable adult is never acceptable. It violates the dignity of the human person that comes to them as a child of God and will not be tolerated in our Church.
It is important to remember that the Diocese of Monterey has taken positive steps to prevent abuse from happening here. The diocese has strong policies in place to protect the children and vulnerable adults entrusted to our care. (…)
