A DESTINATION FOR FAITH, FAMILY, AND FRIENDSHIP
We, the parish family of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, acknowledging our baptismal rights and responsibilities, inspired by the rich tradition of the Church, and grounded in the Gospel, strive to be a loving parish community that makes Jesus Christ present to all people.
Steeped in the traditions of our faith and Catholic heritage, we commit our individual talents in our work of praise, love, and thanksgiving to God. We accept the challenge of active stewardship of both our parish programs and property with time, talent and sacrificial giving, and we pledge to preserve this legacy for future generations.
Every Mass and every celebration should touch the hearts of the people in the pews.
God’s blessing and peace be upon you!
It is with true joy that I serve as priest and spiritual father to Sacred Heart Parish. To me a good father is one who provides what is needed, protects with care, and leads the family to the best life possible. This is the kind of father that I will strive to be for you. It is a true joy for my heart to help souls grow and draw deeper in longing for life with God in Heaven. Please pray for me that I will always be a good father.
For those seeking a new spiritual home, or visiting us for the very first time, “welcome” on behalf of myself and our parish family. We are a joyful people, seeking Jesus in all things, and doing our part to build up the Kingdom of God right here in Rock Island and beyond. This parish has a long history of work in the community with those most in need, and in providing inspiring liturgies and a welcoming place to call home. You are always worthy and always welcome here at Sacred Heart.
Fr Luke, Pastor
