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].

Dear parishioners,

The peace of the Risen Christ be with you and your loved ones.

It's been a very long period since we were unable to attend the various liturgical services in our Church due to the pandemic situation of Covid-19 that started in the United States. Now after being patient and following the guidelines of staying home and being safe given by our Government and Diocese, we are opening the Church of Sacred Heart to begin the schedule of our weekend and daily activities and masses.

In re-opening our building we will be very careful in following social distancing and by practicing awareness of the people that are surrounding us during the functions performed in a closed environment. We all need to bring to Church a personal mask to be worn from the moment we enter into Church and leave, gloves and possible to bring with you, a personal small container of purell or sanitizer.

We will get through this, again let's be patient and willing to follow the guidelines given during this phase. 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

The Institute of Marital Healing - Info from Fr. deMayo

 

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.
