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."

Updates from the Church

On November 19, 1863 President Abraham Lincoln came to Gettysburg, Penn. to dedicate a cemetery for those who lost their lives in the battle of Gettysburg.  He began, "Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."

I have in my hand a piece to a jig saw puzzle.  It is no good unless it can find its place in the puzzle.  It is a useless scrap of paper unless it can find the niche for which it was created.  During the January snow storm of 4 years ago Fr. Pablo and I were stranded at home along with the rest of Houston County.  I had a jig saw puzzle, given as a Christmas present, of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.  It was the first and only puzzle I have ever done as an adult.  Thank goodness Fr. Pablo was around and had some experience with puzzles, and with the help of his mother and sister we finished the puzzle in a matter of two months.  As we worked left the completed part of the puzzle along we had 1000 loose parts on the dining room table.  I was so afraid that just one of the thousand pieces would be vacuumed up by the cleaning lady and the puzzle would be incomplete.

A well known sinner enters the dining room, a dining room for men only.  The woman heads straight for Jesus and caresses his feet.  Kissing them, bathing them with tears and perfuming them with ointment, wiping them with her hair.  Quite a scene.  But, Jesus doesn't seem embarrassed in the least.

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.
