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."

You are not thinking as God does but as human beings (man) do. Now I know how human beings (I) think...what's in it for me? How do I get to the front of the line? But, how does God think? God tells us how God thinks!! "Have that mind in you that was also in Christ Jesus who did not cling to his equality with God, but rather he emptied himself to assume the condition of a servant...there is to be no competition among you, no conceit, but everybody is to be self-effacing...(Phil 2,3) be sympathetic, have compassion, be self-effacing (1Pt. 3,8).

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

As we begin a new school year, things at home and in the community pick up speed. The parish offers programs for our young people that include Life Teen, EDGE (Middle School) and CCD. And, of course, we offer a catholic education through our Catholic School. As one parent whose children attended Sacred Heart School in the past said to me, "My children were prepared for Life".

People running for office usually pick a place that is politically advantageous to make their announcements. In Caesarea Philippi – the son of Herod the great, Phillip reigned and built a temple to honor Caesar Augustus. Even before Christ there were caves here used for pagan worship. People would come and put their little images of their household gods in the walls of the caves much in the same way that we light candles today - a devotion, a prayer asking for help. Jesus is not running for office, but strangely it is here, before this great pagan temple, that Jesus asks the most important question of his life and ours. In this place honoring emperors and pagan idols Jesus invites our response to this question: Who do you say I am?


I pray all is well for you back in Georgia. I have returned to the seminary to begin my fourth year of studies. I have a challenging year ahead of me but I look forward to what is in front of me. This past summer I spent 8 weeks in Central America. I was studying and improving my Spanish proficiency in the country of Guatemala. Though I need to continue to practice, I have learned a great deal and have improved greatly from where I was at the beginning of the summer.
