We are a welcoming and caring community dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, helping each other discover who God is calling us to be.
Today is the day of Election. Those coming into the church are enrolled in the Book of the Elect and enter the period of purification and enlightenment. We are all tempted as Adam and Eve were in the Garden, and even as Jesus our Lord and Messiah was, but with his obedient Passover work for us we can receive the free gift of salvation. We can get through temptation as Jesus did by following him on his way – even through death to the resurrected newborn life of God. God chooses us – do you choose the Lord?
