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

Last Sunday we began reading from the sixth chapter of the Gospel according to John. This chapter is so lengthy that the liturgy has divided it into five parts over five Sundays. The story began last Sunday with the familiar episode of the miracle of the loaves. Jesus fed five thousand people with five barley loaves and a couple of fish. The importance of this event can be seen in the fact that it is the only miracle of Jesus which is recorded in all four Gospels. The manner in which it is related by each evangelist leads people of faith to think of the Eucharist.

"WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal"....On this 4th of July weekend, consider with me the importance of these words. First, that we were created. A belief in God is the foundation on which our nation was begun. We did not spring out of the earth, or simply evolve from an ape. We were created; a divine hand is responsible for our existence. No human fabrication, no king, no government can account for who we are. Our human spirit and our human dignity are from God's hand. And as our nation tries to move forward I am mindful of Pope Francis who said: Building bridges between people is not possible unless God is acknowledged.

Jarius is a man filled with faith and desperation; his 12 year old daughter is near death. He runs through town, finds Jesus and falls at his feet. Come quickly!...Without hesitation Jesus follows, Jairus leading him through the crowd. Suddenly Jairus looks back and Jesus is no longer following. Rather he has stopped and a crowd is gathering around him.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

Happy Father's Day! God bless all you men whom God has called to lead your family. May God give you the grace to fulfill that vocation to which you have been called.

Being a father carries many responsibilities. No wonder so many run away from this calling. You must provide for your families materially, spiritually and emotionally. You must bring home the bacon, be a leader of prayer, and be a rod and staff that give your families courage.

Someone has pointed out that our understanding of God, the Father, is heavily influenced by our experience of our earthly fathers. No human father is perfect, or even close to it. We are all dysfunctional to some extent. But, if we have experienced kindness and compassion in our fathers on earth, then that will go a long way to trusting our Father in heaven. And unfortunately the reverse is also true: Bad paternal experiences make it difficult to pray.

May you all enjoy the warmth and affection of your families today.
