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

Brothers and Sisters,

Our waiting is over, Christ has come, and our faith family at Sacred Heart rejoices. On this Sunday we rejoice with the comfort in our knowledge that Christ has arrived and that His family has successfully escaped to Egypt and returned to Israel. However, despite our joyfulness, after prayerfully listening to the challenges the Holy Family encountered in those days just before and shortly after Christ's birth, our heart aches for them. Joseph and his young and pregnant wife Mary can't find a warm shelter for her to give birth or for them to rest. Soon after delivering her baby in a manger, Mary with her infant son and new husband are forced to flee to another country. Upon returning to their country, Joseph, in fear for the safety of his young family, relocates them to an unfamiliar region. Thus, in this season of rejoicing the Gospel also reminds us of the challenges the vulnerable newborn Christ and His family faced.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The feast of Christmas is a festival of light and song. It is a time of rejoicing and giving thanks. A savior is born, the Lord has come to his people. God has made his dwelling with men and women.

Our Christmas Masses are 4pm,6pm and 8pm (Spanish) on Tuesday the 24th, Midnight Mass (caroling at 11:30) and 10 a.m. Christmas Day. There will be many here whose only time in church will be this Christmas Feast. Please make them feel welcome and maybe we will see them at another time during the year.

On behalf of Fr. Kevin, Brian (our seminarian) and myself, I want to wish you and yours a blessed and holy Christmas. May you know that Christ has come to dwell in your heart. May you make room for the Savior in your words, thought and deeds. May he be born anew in each of us.

Merry Christmas,


Let's boil it down – John the Baptist is in prison, he has some doubt about the ministry of the Christ; eating and drinking with sinners. His question to Jesus: Are you the Christ, has God honored his promise, does God care? Because if the Fortune Five Hundred and Black Friday is all there is to life, then I'm not just disappointed, but I'm in despair.

The third Sunday of Advent is called "Gaudete Sunday". We light a rose (pink) candle and we have the option to wear rose vestments too. The name comes from the beginning of the entrance antiphon for this Sunday's liturgy:

"Gaudéte in Dómino semper: íterum dico, gaudéte.

Dóminus enim prope est."
