Annual Catholic Appeal Prayer
God, whose love is never-ending,
You care for us in all ways and at all times.
Bless us with the understanding that
Everything we have is a gift from You.
You call us to be stewards of your abundance,
the caretakers of all you have entrusted to us.
Help us to always use your gifts wisely,
Teach us to share them generously.
Send your Holy Spirit to work through us,
Bringing your message to those we serve.
May our faithful stewardship
Through the Annual Catholic Appeal
Bear witness to your enduring love of all creation.
May Mary, Mother of god, be with us
To inspire, guide and protect us.
Oh, Holy Blessed Mother, pray for us.
In Jesus’ name we pray.
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!
FR. GREG ADOLF and FR. ROBERT NESKE
all of the People of God at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish!
DID YOU KNOW...
...that Deacon Richard Rivera, will be ordained to the Priesthood at the Cathedral in Tucson on Saturday, 4 June?
Deacon Richard celebrated Communion Services for us and preached at Masses during his internship assignment at St. Patrick’s, Bisbee, last summer and connected with our Community during that time!
Deacon Richard graduated (with honors!) from Mundelein Seminary in Chicago last Saturday. His ordination to the Priesthood will be at 10:00 AM on Saturday, 4 June, and all are invited to take part in this very special celebration.
Newly-ordained Fr. Richard, will celebrate his First Mass at St. Andrew’s, Sierra Vista, the next day, Sunday, 5 June at 10:00 AM, with a barbeque at the Parish, following the Mass – and, again, all are invited to celebrate with Fr. Richard!
His will be the only ordination to the Priesthood in our Diocese this year, (pray for Vocations!) but five will be ordained to the Transitional Diaconate in July, with ordination to the Priesthood in 2023!
We hope to have Fr. Richard come and celebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving here at Sacred Heart this summer! His first assignment as a Priest, will be as a Parochial Vicar at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, in Tucson!
Pray for Fr. Richard and for many blessings to pass through his hands in the years to come!
