Prayer During Communion


Form of Spiritual Communion, by St. Alphonsus Liguori


My JESUS, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.

I love You above all things and I desire to receive You in my soul.

Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.

Never permit me to be separated from You.



Welcome to Sacred Heart of Jesus!


“¡Mi casa es su casa!” ‘My house is your house’

The Southwest is known for our warm welcomes and heartfelt hospitality! Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish has been extending this same warm welcome for over 140 year, since pioneer missionary, Fr. Antonio Jouvenceau, came to Tombstone, to minister to the need of those flocking into the area following the discovery of rich silver deposits!

Although the popular concept of Tombstone, largely shaped by Hollywood, portrays our community as centered in the bars and gambling dens of Allen Street and shadowed by violence, there is another and much more enduring story, of pioneer men, women and families, who sought to build a lasting community, founded on the values of the Gospel!

That is our story, and it is a story which continues to be written, not in historic re-enactments, but in the hearts and lives of people who call Tombstone home.

Our Parish is the “Mother Church” of Cochise County and has been instrumental in planting new parishes in the surrounding area.  We continue to be part of the global Mission of the Church, and have entered our third century filled with the joy and the hope of those who are experiencing new life in Christ!

We would cordially invite you to experience that new life with us, and to know that the One who extends the invitation, “My house is your house!” is, in fact, the Lord!


Looking forward to welcoming you!




all of the People of God at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish!


Did You Know...




...that a new ambry (Holy Oils cabinet) has been purchased for the church?

One of the most beautiful liturgies of the year is the “Chrism Mass”, which takes place in the Cathedral during Holy Week!

During this Mass, the Bishop consecrated the Holy Oils, which are then taken to each Parish in the Diocese. The Holy Oils are, of course, the Sacred Chrism (from which this particular Mass takes its name), which is used for the ‘chrismation’ (‘christening’) of the newly Baptized, those being Confirmed, and the Ordination of Deacons, Priests, and Bishops! (The Sacred Chrism is also used to consecrate altars!)

Mixed with fragrant balsam, the Sacred Chrism, has a wonderful and penetrating aroma! The Oil of the Catechumens is used to anoint those who are preparing for Baptism. This anointing is on or above the heart, and offers spiritual strength for those preparing for their Baptismal entry into the Body of Christ! The Oil of the Infirm is used to anoint those who are ill, or “who have grown weary under the burden of years.” Before the reform of the Liturgy in 1964, this Holy Oil was used in the administration of “Last Rites” and gave its name to the Rite: “Extreme Unction”, or ‘final anointing’.  Since the reform, the Oil of the Infirm is now administered very frequently - to shut-ins, the hospitalized, and at regularly scheduled celebrations of the Sacrament of Anointing for Healing, such as we celebrate on First Fridays.

The Holy Oils are supposed to be displayed for veneration in a secure cabinet. Our present ambry (Holy Oils cabinet) is being replaced by a larger, more seemly, and more secure ambry, which will be installed above the credence table on the west side of the Sanctuary. Lovely new containers for the Holy Oils will replace the plastic bottles, (which are normally used to transfer the Holy Oils from the Cathedral to the Parishes.) The installation of our new ambry will take place as soon as the new steel brackets for securing it to the wall are crafted. We believe that you will be impressed by this beautiful new addition to our beautiful church!
