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

Who needs Lent? I do, you do, we all do. We need this holy season of "Spring Cleaning". Time to look behind the nooks and crannies of our hearts and see the dust balls of sinful habits that have gathered there. Time to get out the stringent cleanser of penance and fasting to clean up our act.

Our 8th graders at Sacred Heart School wrote essays on the value of a Catholic Education at Sacred Heart School.  You can read their essays by opening the PDF's here. Check back later because more will be added as they are submitted to the church office:

The Collect for this first Sunday of Lent calls to mind these lines from G.M. Hopkins' poem, "The Windhover":

No wonder of it: shéer plód makes plough down sillion

Shine, and blue-bleak embers, ah my dear,

Fall, gall themselves, and gash gold-vermillion.

Top Ten Favorite Excuses People Give for Not Going to Church (and my snarky responses to those excuses)

Leprosy – one of the most dreaded diseases in biblical times- made the person unclean (which he had to cry out), untouchable, a living corpse, a living death. The rabbis considered leprosy as difficult to cure as raising the dead. Let's stop there a moment- have you ever been shunned? Ignored? I had a relative who ignored another family member for 5 years. I have read and heard of this happening between family living in the same house. Never spoke, never acknowledged her existence. That kind of shunning is deadly; it kills the spirit. You might say just write them off, but it's not that easy. Not to be touched, to be spoken to, some marriages come close to that – it is deadly. We speak of being a social leper; this leper was ostracized and shunned in every sense- physically, socially and spiritually.
