Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church is a Roman Catholic Parish. It carries out the pastoral ministry and dispenses grace of salvation to its people.
The peculiar characteristic of this parish is its welcoming hospitality, inclusiveness, respect for the cultural, ethnic, racial, political and economic diversity of its members.
There are 37 different nationalities composing the magnificent mosaic of the church of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.
The devotions to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary are central to our sharing of grace with one another.
At the present time, the pastoral care of the parish of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart is entrusted to the priests of the New York Congregation Oratory of Saint Philip Neri. The spirit of “joyful discipleship”, which distinguished the first disciples of Jesus and St Philip Neri himself, inspires our community.
Fr. Francis Conka will be installed as the 8th Pastor of OLSH on Sunday, October 26, at a special celebration of the Mass at 2:00 PM. Most Rev. John Joseph Jenik, Auxiliary Bishop of NY, will preside. All parishioners are invited to attend. A reception will follow. PLEASE email the rectory at email@example.com if you will be attending so that we can plan. We hope that you can join us in the special celebration!!!!
