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

My mother had three sons.  My two brothers had made a comfortable living as doctors. My mother was a wise woman. In her will my mother divided up her estate equally between the three of us- a priest and two doctors. (Now I ask you:  Is that fair?)  Now why had she done that?  To keep the peace between us.  How easily money becomes the wedge that drives us apart.  How many times have you heard of families falling out over their estates? What is more important to me: a few thousand dollars or peace with my family?  What is more important: some bucks in the bank or an ongoing relationship with my brothers? Only in our relationships do we know love; that is something money can't buy.

Love one another as I have loved you.  Words spoken two thousand years ago.  Today they are given a new life and a new voice in the latest Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Frances, Amoris Laetitia. The joy of love.

The Pope's letter is an exhortation on family life. And if Jesus' words find a fitting echo that echo would be in the family. I am going to try and offer snippets from a 250 page document. The triune God is a communion of love and the family is its living reflection of that divine communion, father, son and Holy Spirit.  Where is God? Who is God? Look at the life of a family as it struggles to love and you see God revealed.  Against this background of love one virtue stands out, a virtue overlooked in our world of superficial relationships:  Tenderness.   In our families we must learn to imitate Jesus' own gentleness in relating to one another.  Tenderness is a sign of a love that is free of selfish possessiveness.

There is a line in the Apostle's Creed which states "...and He descended into hell.."  What could this possibly mean?  The traditional explanation is that the gates of heaven were closed until Jesus died and rose, then after his resurrection he went into hell and freed all the souls of those who lived before he accomplished his paschal mystery.  But let's consider this through two other images.

One of the powerful things about this Gospel story is the abundant mercy of God in Jesus Christ.  One of the more interesting details is Jesus bending down and writing in the dust while the woman is made to stand in the circle of shame.  People have speculated what Jesus is writing in the dust?  Is he writing the sins of the men standing around the woman?  Who can Say?

From the encyclical, Deus est Caritas, of Pope Benedict XVI, "If in my life I fail to heed others, solely out of a desire to be "devout" and to perform my "religious duties', then my relationship with God will also grow arid.  It becomes merely 'proper', but loveless."  This line not only describes the elder son in the Gospel parable, he's proper but loveless, but many of us as well.  I do my duty; I do it properly, but without love. I do the job but I don't share myself. I celebrate Mass; I am doing it properly, according to the rubrics and directions of the church, but without love.  There is an emptiness there that does not share the heart of what the Mass is all about, Deus est caritas.
