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 our “Synod Listening Session” provided great information for our Parish?

While the discussion questions, presented by the Diocese, were about our hopes, dreams, concerns, and desires for the Universal Church, the reflections and insights that were shared actually have applications for our own parish – our most ‘personal’ experience of what it means to be the Church!

If there was a ‘theme’ that emerged from the “Listening Session” it was about being a “welcoming Church”, where every person should feel welcomed and valued as a beloved daughter or son of God! Concerns were expressed that we not allow the divisiveness of the world, and the current culture of suspicion, contentiousness, and recrimination, to invade the Community of Faith. “Speaking the truth in love,” as St. Paul tells us we are called to do, (Ephesians 4:15) means to make sure that our commitment to the Truth is always spoken with genuine concern for others and a gentleness which invites listening, so that we can grow in maturity in Christ!

We experienced again, in the “Listening Session,” genuine respect for others and an acknowledgment that we are all at different places in our Faith journey, as individuals (and as parish communities), which does not ‘water down’ the Truth, revealed in and through JESUS! An ancient adage, (attributed to a number of saints!) says: “In essentials there must be unity, in non-essentials there must be liberty, but in all things, there must be charity!”

Concerns were expressed as to how our Parish welcomes and values the contributions of our Youth, and others. We also discussed how we can invite our own parishioners to “reconnect” with the Faith Community!  How we welcome people – not just our many visitors, but our own parishioners – is a challenge which each of us should accept!

Because of the wonderful corporal works of mercy being done by our St. Vincent de Paul Society, Thrift Store, Food Pantry, Knights of Columbus, and so many activities of so many individual parishioners, we feel that we are doing a pretty good job of demonstrating the love of God for our ‘neighbors’! The question/challenge is, how can we be more effective in bringing the love of Christ to our own parishioners, and how can we invite all of our parishioners to become involved and grow with a ministry that uses their particular talents?

It was Pope St. John Paul II who pointed out that ‘Community is built on Trust, and Trust is built on Truth’ (and that the opposite is true: if there is not Truth, there can be no Trust, and if there is no Trust, the inevitable fragmentation and isolation will occur).

We are very grateful for the opportunities which the “Synod Listening Sessions” gave to us,  to speak – and to listen to – the Truth in love! Many thanks to all who participated!
