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].

From the Pastor's Desk







Dear parishioners,

Dear Parishioners,

Lately myself and Fr Martin deMayo have been very busy with baptisms, first communions, confirmations. All is going well despite the actual situation of Covid-19, we need to continue our mission within our families, our loved ones, our friends and people that we encounter every day that the love and mercy of Christ crucified and Risen for our sins can be manifested to them. Despite everything our mission of evangelization has to continue in our neighborhoods and surroundings. Let's pray for each other.

God bless you!

Fr. Alfonso Picone

The Institute of Marital Healing

One of the blessings of our day is the growth of counseling centers founded by men and woman of faith who are working to understand our nature as human beings, the nature God created, and to help us live according to it. This is a wonderful complement to the ministry of the Church and our life in the Church.

One such center is The Institute for Marital Healing which can be found by clicking on the following link. There is another center associated with this Institute which is simply called Child Healing and can be found by clicking on the link below

Encounter God by Praying with Sacred Scripture

Jesus wants to lead each of us into a very personal and deep relationship with Him, His Father and the Holy Spirit. God wants to speak with us through Sacred Scripture. He is inviting us to learn to pray with Scripture in what has been called Christian meditation and contemplation. Saints have described this as heart speaking to heart.
Fr. Timothy Gallagher is a very gifted teacher who has been helping many people encounter the Lord through Christian meditation and contemplation according to the methods of St. Ignatius of Loyola.
Fr. Gallagher has established a web page where you can listen to his podcasts. Each podcast is about 30 minutes and on this topic there are 7 podcasts. You can listen at your own leisure by clicking on the following link and looking for Fr. Gallagher's podcasts.
