About Our Church


The first Masses celebrated in Warner Robins were held at the USO Hall on an altar made from stacked Coke crates and boards. On September 23, 1945, in the building we now know as the "Parish Hall," the first Mass of Sacred Heart Parish in Warner Robins was celebrated in our church by our founding Pastor, Rev. Harold Gaudin, S.J. In addition to serving as the church, this building also housed the church offices, the social hall, and the pastor's residence. The original church could seat around 200 people.

In September 1955, Sacred Heart School started and in 1956 the Presentation Sisters arrived from Ireland to take charge of the school. On February 8, 1962, the second Sanctuary was dedicated to handle our growing number of parishioners. It seated 500 people.


About our Priests

Father FredOn May 25, 1968, Deacon Frederick J. Nijem, Jr., entered the brand-new Saint John the Evangelist Church in Valdosta, to become the first priest ever ordained there. The church's pastor, Father Thomas J. Payne, waived the privilege of celebrating the first Mass in his new church, commenting, "I think it's the most appropriate thing that could happen to a new church-to launch a new priest. We broke ground last July with this in mind."

It has been mentioned to me that there are children of grade school age who are playing on their iPad during Mass. The mention was made because people around them found the activity very distracting during Mass. And rightly so. It is very difficult to pay attention during Mass let alone having persons around you doing something totally unrelated to the Mass. Do you appreciate going to a movie only to have people around you whispering about everything other than the movie? I call on the parents of these children to stop this behavior during Mass. For at least three reasons: First, if you let children do what they want, when they want, wherever they want, you are on the road to raising a possible monstrosity. Secondly, it is a serious distraction to those around you. Please have some consideration for others. Thirdly, because I ask you to stop this behavior, thank you.

Sacred Heart is planning an 11 day pilgrimage to Italy from May 25 - June 4, 2015. For more information please open the link below:

In the Vatican II constitution on the Liturgy, Sacrosanctum Concilium, there is a whole section devoted to sacred music. In article 112, the document states:

"Sacred music is to be considered the more holy in proportion as it is more closely connected with the liturgical action, whether it adds delight to prayer, fosters unity of minds, or confers greater solemnity upon the sacred rites."

Brothers and Sisters,

When you walked into Church this morning I hope you took just a moment to look around and appreciate what a marvelous Church Home we have. Take a couple of minutes to really look. Look at the beautiful architecture, at the beautiful artwork we have, and even take a few moments to look at the beautiful liturgical furniture that we have. This place of worship is a testament to God and a testament to our faithful stewardship of the gifts that God has given to each of us. The fact that we were able to pay the mortgage in full in just seven short years is a testament to the sense of ownership that we rightly feel for OUR spiritual home. But our spiritual home requires a lot of work to keep it looking beautiful.
