About Our Church

altar

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."

Updates from the Church

After all those fish jumped into the boat there a lot of things Peter could have said.  Like, WOW! Where did you learn to fish like that! Or, he could have said, if you're not doing anything tomorrow about this same time, would you go out with us again?  Instead, Peter said something that went far beyond fishing.

The Super Bowl happens next Sunday, and for those who care, we have already picked our favorites.  Although I must say the Panthers look like the favorites partly because of their quarterback, Cam Newton.  I have never cared for Cam Newton even during his days at Auburn.  As someone said, he seemed to have an ego a mile long.  Even so, others are talking about how much he gives back to the community and how friendly he is with the fans.  In any case I'm starting to have a slight change of mind about Cam.

January 24th

Hearing snippets of the Gospel, as we do each week, it is sometimes hard to get a sense of this "orderly account" of which Luke writes. Let me take a moment and try to offer a sense of where Luke is taking us. Luke begins Jesus' public ministry with his baptism.  We learned that Jesus was at prayer and had a profound religious and human experience, the most profound anyone can have. He became aware, undoubtedly and absolutely, that he was God's beloved Son.  And Luke tells us he was filled with God's spirit.

We are familiar with the gifts of the wise men: gold, frankincense and myrrh. And since this feast is part of the Christmas season, we reflect on giving gifts to one another. Mary Baker Eddy, founder of the Christian Scientism said that she did not believe in giving material gifts for Christmas, she rather meditated on truth and purity until her friends were the better for it. G. K. Chesterton the Catholic British thinker said that Ms. Eddy missed the whole point of the feast. The point of the incarnation was to embody divine love. As the prologue of John's Gospel states: "And he pitched his tent and dwelled among us".

We learn many important lessons from Luke's story, lessons for our families. First, Luke tells us that Jesus' family, in particular, was religious and made their pilgrimage to the Jerusalem temple every year. Actually the Jewish law states that every Jewish male was obligated to a temple pilgrimage, by taking Mary and Jesus along, this family was going beyond what was required. The entire family participated in this expression of religious devotion. We know from another part of the Gospel that as a grown man Jesus attended the synagogue regularly, (Luke says, "as was his custom"). There is nothing so fragmenting and divisive as having part of a family express their religious devotion and the other part not be involved, on the other hand there is nothing so uplifting and inspiring as having one's whole family share in religious devotion.
