The Feast of the Sacred Heart or the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart or the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus is a feast in the calendar of the Roman Catholic Church. It happens 19 days after Pentecost on a Friday and that’s today. The first liturgical feast was celebrated on August 31, 1670 in Rennes, France.
Why is it important? Well the Sacred Heart Catholic Church is celebrating it’s 100th year anniversary this year and is using this Feast as an opportunity to share this celebration with the community of Seward.
At 6:00 p.m. tonight at the Branson Pavilion the parish will celebrate an outdoor Mass (evoking the first Catholic church services which were held in Seward in a tent by Father Philibert Phillip Turnell, and Rev. John M. Handly.) After the Mass at about 7:00 p.m. the parish will grill hamburgers and hot dogs to share with the community.
Please come and share with us this celebration of our centennial year.
In 1910 Father Matthias Schmidt, S. J. along with members of the parish built the original Sacred Heart Church and rectory on a lot donated by John E. Ballaine, the town’s founder,
Over the last 100 years through good times and bad the Roman Catholic community of Sacred Heart Parish has worshiped and actively participated in the Seward community. During this milestone the parish would like to share our fellowship with all members of the community.
Therefore, Sacred Heart Parish would like to invite the community of Seward to help us celebrate our 100th anniversary. On Friday, June 11th during the Feast of Sacred Heart at 6:00 p.m. we will celebrate an outdoor Mass (honoring our parish start in a tent) at the Branson Pavilion. Then at approximately 7:00 we invite the community to join us for a cookout of hamburgers and hot dogs. Please come and join us in this significant milestone.
