Welcome to Sacred Heart Church! We are a Roman Catholic parish founded in 1881 in the Georgetown section of Redding, Connecticut.
The image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is very important to us and serves as a constant reminder of Jesus’ personal invitation to all who believe in Him and try to live by His teachings: “Come to me all you who are weary and find life burdensome, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon your shoulders and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light”. (Matthew 11:28-30). We welcome you to join us in worship as we strive daily to fulfill our Parish Mission:
We, the parish of Sacred Heart, see our mission as a share in Christ's, that of revelation and reconciliation. By this, we intend that all that we do in some way reveals God's presence and power, and reconciles and heals everyone we meet. We live this mission of evangelization out in the essential dimensions of faith, worship, service and community as depicted in the Acts of the Apostles. We believe that all four of these areas are mutually necessary, and that the focus of each is our purpose for being, that of praising and giving glory to the Father by all that we are and do in the name of His Son and in the power of His Holy Spirit.
