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

Someone said this gospel story is not about running away to Emmaus but about going back to Jerusalem and facing what happened there because they recognize Jesus in the breaking of the bread and they remember his instructions: Take and eat, do this in memory of Me.


As we continue celebrating Easter we celebrate two other events today. First, today is Divine Mercy Sunday. The message of the Divine Mercy is "that God loves us – all of us. And, he wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His Joy." We have the opportunity today to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet together at 3 PM, to trust in Jesus and his Divine Mercy.

I have a print by the Swiss painter Eugene Burnand (d. 1821) hanging in my office. It is a copy of his most famous work, entitled "The Disciples Peter and John Running to the Supulchre on Easter Morning". The painting is based on the Gospel of John 20:1-9, "Peter and the other disciple went to the Tomb. They ran side by side". They are running, of course, because they have just been told by Mary Magdalene, "They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don't know where they have put him".

Bulletin Article for Sunday April 13: Palm Sunday

Today is Palm Sunday. It's the beginning of Holy Week. Christ and His apostles are in Jerusalem for the climax of His earthly ministry. Our Lenten journey nears its conclusion. However, our Lenten walk with Christ attains its fulfillment through our spiritual participation in His trials this week. This means that we'll share in the Last Supper with Christ and His apostles. Soon after we'll pray in the Garden of Gethsemane with Christ while empathizing with His sorrow and anguish at what's about to happen. We'll be with Jesus, both times, when He finds His disciples sleeping despite His repeated pleading that they remain awake. During the culmination of His betrayal by one of His closest friends we'll listen to Christ denounce the use of violence and then we'll notice that all His disciples have disappeared and He's alone. We'll watch Christ rejected and condemned by His people. We'll hear the crowd yell "let Him be crucified, let Him be crucified." As Christ struggles and stumbles while carrying His cross we'll recognize that He's also endured a scourging from the hands of Roman soldiers. We'll witness Christ nailed to a cross, hoisted up, mocked and eventually die.

Jesus is moving towards the tomb of Lazarus. Jesus is moving into the territory of the dead. Jesus is moving into the place that strikes mortal terror in our hearts, the place of death. As a matter of fact Jesus waited on purpose for Lazarus to die. Jesus wanted to reveal not his power to heal, which he shows many times, but his power over death. Jesus is moving there because he loves us. Lazarus represents you and me and Jesus loves Lazarus; Jesus loves you and me. Jesus is moving into enemy territory because he loves us and his love is stronger than death.
