Novena of the Sacred Heart
Beginning Tuesday, June 2nd, the Legion of Mary will be hosting a Novena every night at 7pm, concluding on the Feast of the Sacred Heart on Friday, June 11th. On the night of the Feast of the Sacred Heart, we will have a live concert at 6pm, followed by a bilingual Mass at 7pm. Please join us as we celebrate this Feast Day!

Family Faith Formation
Family Faith Formation will be starting back up sometime in the Fall shortly after the start of the 2021-2022 school year. We are currently looking for feedback of when would be the best day to host Family Faith Formation. Please vote for which would be the best day to host Family Faith Formation for the next year! 
Note: Parents would be able to leave early on Wednesdays to attend Mass at 7:00 p.m.

Baby Bottle Fundraiser
Sacred Heart Church will be hosting a baby bottle fundraiser to assist Transition Pregnancy Solutions, a non-profit crisis pregnancy center right here in Danville! All you need to do is come by the church, pick up a baby bottle or two, then fill them with coins, cash, or checks, then turn them back in. If you already have bottles filled, please bring them to the church and pick up another.
The fundraiser will last until Father’s Day, June 20th.

Father’s Watch Party
Beginning in June, we will be hosting watch parties of 30 minute videos with discussion afterwards on Tuesdays and Thursdays with Father. Stay tuned for more information coming soon!

Mass Times

Bishop Knestout and other bishops have decided to lift the dispensation of the Sunday and Holy Days Mass obligation in the Dioceses of Richmond, and will reinstate that obligation beginning on Saturday, June 26, 2021 and Sunday, June 27, 2021. We welcome and encourage the Faithful to return to full in-person participation of the Sunday Eucharist, the source and summit of our Catholic faith. If you would like to read the joint statement regarding Lifting the General Dispensation from the Obligation to Attend Mass , please click here.
This obligation does not apply to those who are ill; those who have reason to believe that they were recently exposed to the coronavirus, another serious or contagious illness; those who are confined to their home, a hospital, or nursing facility; or those with serious underlying health conditions. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the parish office.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19, Mass is still being live-streamed for use on various Diocesan digital media accounts of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond, including, but not limited to, the websites of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond and the Catholic Virginian, and the social media platforms of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond. Photography and/or screenshot images from the live-stream may be used for the Catholic Virginian print edition. If you do not wish to be captured by live streaming, please refrain from attending that particular Mass time.
