  • Dads' First Friday Faith and Fellowship with Deacon John Kerrigan

    FRIDAY'S MONTHLY DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR  8:30-9:30am SHS Dad's First Friday:  Faith and Fellowship with current and past parent Deacon John Kerrigan.  Meet in the Otto Library in the Main (brick) Building on the Sacred Heart Prep Campus.
     
    Dads' (and Dudes) First Friday gatherings are an opportunity to come together once monthly to share fellowship, to reflect on a spiritual reading (typically a passage from the New Testament), and through small group discussion, to connect insights with daily lives as fathers, husbands, and leaders. The premise is that the more we reflect on our lives, especially in a spiritual context, the richer and more meaningful our inner lives and encounters with others become. No experience necessary, and all faith traditions are welcome!  You don't have to be a dad to attend.
  • Come to the Quiet

    Come to the Quiet 
    A weekly opportunity for a calming prayer and a silent reflection led by Sister Dolan during the academic school year.
  • SHS Family Mass Series

    Celebrate our shared Catholic faith on Sacred Heart grounds, as we come together in community for liturgy of the Word and SHS fellowship. Family Masses are held on the Sacred Heart campus.
  • Christmas Family Mass

    A longstanding tradition at Sacred Heart, and newly re-instituted in 2015, the Christmas Family Mass is held on the Saturday preceding the holiday, with alumni volunteers actively taking part in the liturgy as lectors, eucharistic ministers, musicians, and other roles. Coordinated by the Parents' Association Spirituality Committee, the service is followed by holiday-themed hospitality.
