MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR:
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Welcome to our Roman Catholic faith community.
Our parish community is involved in many aspects of pastoral service. Our many volunteers truly help to make our Church a welcoming place to worship God and enter a profound experience with Jesus.
We always strive to bring the message of love and mercy of Jesus to all who come to our parish. If your are a long-time parishioner or a new parishioner or a visitor, we welcome you with open arms and hope you truly have a wonderful encounter with Jesus at Sacred Heart .
Yours in Christ,

“Walking Together” - Papal Visit to Canada - July 24 to 29, 2022
The Holy Father will visit Canada from July 24 to July 29, 2022. Pope Francis’ historic visit to Canada will provide an opportunity for the Pope to listen and dialogue with Indigenous Peoples and to address the impact of residential schools in Canada. The Holy Father will begin his Canadian visit by traveling to Edmonton, Alberta, then to Quebec City, St. Anne-de-Beaupré and then to Iqaluit, Nunavut before returning to Rome.
Drawing on the theme, “Walking Together”, the Holy Father’s journey of reconciliation, healing and hope includes visits to a former residential school, Indigenous pilgrimage sites, and several private and public events, including two public Masses.
Details of the Papal Visit is on the Papal Visit’s official website: http://www.papalvisit.ca/ . You can also find detailed information on the Healing and Reconciliation Journey and the Papal Visit on our diocesan website: https://hamiltondiocese.com/papal-visit-2022/.
In response to the recent discoveries of unmarked graves on the site of former Residential Schools across Canada, His Excellency, Bishop Crosby, OMI, issued a Pastoral Letter entitled: To Inform, To Encourage, To Heal.
His Excellency’s letter, along with multiple resources including: a brief history of Residential Schools in Canada, Expressions of Apology and Actions and Commitments towards reconciliation, have been encompassed in a special section on our diocesan website.

One Heart One Soul Campaign - KICKOFF:
This weekend marks the Kick-off for Sacred Heart Parish campaign. For 90 years, Sacred Heart Parish has played a significant role in the Guelph community and in the lives of its parishioners. Our pride in what our Catholic ancestors built and left us inspires us to leave for the next generation a parish community for which they can feel equally blessed.
Today, this inspiration moves us to continue to build upon our faith foundation, to help bring others to Christ. That journey includes uniting to maintain and improve our spiritual home, even as we face the challenges of COVID-19. For more information click here
