Welcome to Sacred Heart Church

Welcome to Sacred Heart Church in Stamford, Connecticut, the Italian National Parish. We are a diverse community of many cultures where the love of Christ is brought to, and shared with our neighbors.

Jesus said "Love one another as I have loved you, it is in this love that they will know that you are my disciples".

All are welcome at Sacred Heart Church. You will find a warm, welcoming, family atmosphere here at Sacred Heart. It is the perfect setting for prayer, worship and spiritual enrichment.

Our liturgies are where our parishioners and those who visit, enjoy and live the sacraments of the Catholic Church as Christ being present to bring His love and tenderness to all in the Church. Please feel free to contact our office if you have any questions. We are looking forward to seeing you at Mass with us.

If you would like to become a parishioner, have any questions, or say hello please email us at [email protected].

The Theology of the Body

The Revelation of God’s Plan for everything
The Theology of the Body
God is full of surprises. He must have astounded the angels when He created us. Think about it.
Angels are spiritual beings. On the one hand, human beings are like them because we too are spiritual beings. But we are also very different because we are also physical beings. We are a mysterious union of spirit and body.
Why did God do that? He made us as He did, male and female, in His image because He wanted to reveal the deepest mystery of Himself, through us, with us, and in us. Truly He is full of surprises.
If you would like to learn more about this plan of God’s and at the same time come to a deeper understanding of the gift of being human – created and redeemed – then please come to the DVD presentation of something Pope St. John Paul II called, the Theology of the Body.
This is an 8 part presentation and every presentation is about 30 minutes. The person who developed this program also developed a study guide with questions to help our understanding of God’s plan.
Experience indicates most groups need about an hour to discuss those questions.
We will begin on Sundays beginning March 15th (3rd Sunday of Lent) and meet at 7:30pm, finishing at 9:00pm. For those who are not working and do not want to go after dark, we will meet on Fridays beginning March 20th and will meet at 2:00pm finishing at 3:30pm. We will not meet on Good Friday (April 10th) or Easter Sunday (March 12th).
If you are interested please call the office to register so we will know how many study guides to order.
Hope to see you there. God bless.
