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

Water covers about two thirds of the earth's surface. We know that we cannot live without it, but sometimes we cannot live with it. The apostles understood water very well. They derived their livelihood as fishermen from it. For them water usually meant life. But one night in particular, with the wind howling above them and the water roaring beneath their boat, they knew that water could mean their death.

While Herod is hosting an orgy in the palace for the elite and the self-centeredness there leads to the death of John the Baptist, Jesus, moved with pity and concern for the masses, hosts a banquet in the wilderness for thousands. It is a life giving banquet that evokes Israel's manna (the desert), Isaiah's vision (first reading), the Church's Eucharist and heaven's supper of the Lamb. And after the banquet is finished Matthew tells us, please note, that there are twelve baskets (perfect number/symbolic) left over; that is to say Jesus' feast is prolonged through all generations. It doesn't run out. In Jesus there is an exhaustible supply of care and concern given through the Eucharist. Make no mistake this is a story about the Eucharist "He took, blessed and broke and distributed".

If you have been considering becoming Catholic, we invite you to join our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation) Orientation on August 19th at 7PM in the Fellowship Room of the church.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

How blessed we are at Sacred Heart. Many churches use a "canned column" for their bulletins. But, thanks to the efforts of Shawn Stevens, our secretary, who schedules and prods, we have a freshly written column every week. And not only that, we have a variety of writers who are more than willing to share their reflections and ministry with us.

It seems like in recent weeks we have all heard our fill about the Hobby Lobby court case. And depending on who you listen to you have heard a very different story. The truth of the matter is that the owners of Hobby Lobby had a moral objection to paying for a small number of drugs that are known abortifacients. Unfortunately, far too many people use abortion as just another form of birth control. As Catholics we should commend Hobby Lobby for their moral stand against abortion. The Catholic Church also believes that abortion is wrong! And the Church takes it one step further; she teaches that any form of artificial birth control is wrong.
