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."

Our Gospels for the last couple of weeks and beyond are part of Matthew's Sermon on the Mount. The sermon begins with the Beatitudes which set the tone for all that follows and today's Gospel begins with 6 statements of the Jewish law and Jesus' interpretation of those laws. Today we consider the law against murder, adultery and swearing. Note that unlike the rabbis, Jesus did not cite any authority for his teaching, He simply says, you have heard it said but I say unto you. As the Gospels say, he taught as one with authority.

Brothers and Sisters, this weekend we pause to remember and celebrate one of the things that makes our country great. The holiday we celebrate this weekend began as a celebration of the life of our first President, George Washington. And, even though since 1971 it has come to be known as Presidents' Day, the federal government still carries this holiday on the federal register as Washington's Birthday.

February 14, 2014

Dear Friends in Christ,

In our Eucharistic Prayer we ask: "Remember, Lord, your Church, spread throughout the world, and bring her to the fullness of charity, together with Benedict our Pope, and Gregory John, our bishop." Bishop Gregory invites us again this year to join him in ministry to the people of our Diocese, through the Bishop's Annual Appeal. And in the spirit of the Eucharistic Prayer, which we say every Sunday, I trust that we will respond generously to our Bishop's appeal.

I am asking that each and every household in our parish respond to the Bishop. This past year close to 500 households responded and, thanks to your generosity, we have met and exceeded our goal.

All of the ministries featured in the Bishop's video (diosav.org/baa) have benefited our parish. Seminarians, Catholic Schools, Hispanic ministry, and more, all have a positive impact on the growth and life of Sacred Heart. If each of us and all of us do our part, then our response to the Bishop's Appeal will be successful. I ask that you search your hearts and prayerfully consider your response to the needs of our Diocese. This is an act of stewardship and our use of the God-given gifts we enjoy. This is about being part of the Catholic Church spread throughout the world. This is about coming into the fullness of charity.

God bless you for your generosity.
