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

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

We rejoice on this Feast of the King! Someone has said that we don't relate well to "kings". Perhaps we should title this feast "Christ the President," or "Christ the Prime Minister". However, presidents and prime ministers own their office to popularity polls and elections. Christ the King owes his position to neither elections nor popularity polls. Christ is true God and true Man. Christ is King, may he reign in the hearts of his people forever!

What makes your life in the final judgment a success or a failure? According to this Gospel, it is whether you responded to what Dr. King called the lost, the least, the last. What a surprising criteria! The sheep are being rewarded for actions that they did almost without thinking, simply because a person was in need. The Shepherd assures them that when they gave a drink of water, or visited the hospital; they cared for him.

A gentleman died, so the story goes, and his wife put a notice in the obituary column which read: "Los Angeles, today my husband, Mr. Smith, departed for heaven at 3:30 AM." The next day a notice appeared in the paper: "Heaven, 8:30 PM. Mr. Smith has not yet arrived. Whereabouts unknown."

Every so often my online password gets lost in cyberspace and I have to put up another one. My most recent password was that of a dear friend who died two years ago and I used her name as part of my password, so that every time I use the password I remember her. It's a memory trigger. Perhaps we have other memory triggers which bring to mind those that we loved and have gone one before us. While my brother is still alive we remind each other of birthdays of deceased relatives and share stories of family members who preceded us in death. When one of us dies...who knows....

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I was happily surprised to see an article in the Macon Telegraph extolling the virtues of the family meal. The author said that research has shown that family meals curb delinquency and help create a sense of family unity. Someone told me that at his family table there was a rule: only one conversation at a time. Breaking bread means sharing our lives.
