Welcome to Sacred Heart Catholic Church

 

      A Message from the Pastor:

   

Dear Friend,

Praised be Jesus Christ!

Welcome to the wonderful parish of Sacred Heart in Royersford, PA, and welcome to our website. We hope you find this website informative.

Please join us on the Lord's Day, Sunday morning or Saturday evening, to give thanks to God for the blessings that you have received.  The Eucharist is the source and summit of everything we do. We hope you will join us in offering praise to God. We also invite you to visit Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament at our Little Flower Chapel, located on the side of the rectory.

I hope you will consider becoming an active member of Sacred Heart Church: worshipping God with us, learning more about our Catholic faith, and sharing the love of God with one another and with the larger community around us.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to learn more about how we can help you on your journey of faith.
May the Lord be close to you as you explore this site! Thank you and God bless you.

Your brother in Christ,
Rev. Tadeusz Gorka
Pastor
