Dear Sacred Heart Parishioners,
The palms are ready for pickup this coming Sunday from 9:00am - 5:00pm at the main entrance of the Church. Members of the Knight of Columbus will distribute the palms along the 3rd street nearby the Family Life Center from 9:00am - 10:00am. Father Joseph Ho will bless the palms with the Eucharist in the monstrance. Hope everyone will get a palm to reflect upon the passion of the Christ. Have a blessed Holy Week. May God bless all of us.

The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston Recommendations
That each parish continue to maintain their regular Mass schedules for all those who wish to participate, though the obligation to attend Mass is being dispensed until further notice.
The following individuals are asked to remain at home and not attend Mass:
Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston Prayer in the Time of the Coronavirus
Comfort us, O Lord, for we are like your disciples on the storm tossed seas,
unsettled by what lies ahead.
We turn to You, our Healer and Guide,
to still our hearts in our time of need and hear our prayer:
Heal those who are sick with the coronavirus and protect the elderly and most vulnerable.
Give strength to all who tend to our health and wisdom to researchers who work toward a cure.
Open our eyes and hearts, as you did during Hurricane Harvey, that we may look beyond our immediate needs to care for others who need help.
Through the Holy Spirit, guide our leaders to make wise decisions for the welfare of all the people they serve.
Grant eternal rest to those who have died from the virus.
May Mary, Our Mother, who has heard our pleas in the storms of our lives,
intercede to her Son, that we may find healing and a prompt end to this illness.
Mary, Star of the Sea, pray for us.
Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, heal us.
As our nation and the world faces the crisis surrounding COVID-19, many dioceses and parishes have taken the extraordinary measure to cancel the celebration of public Masses and in some cases dispense the faithful from their Sunday obligation. This has been done as state and local governments have begun to limit large gatherings of people in order to limit the spread of the virus and ultimately keep us safe.
During this time, especially during the Lenten season, we wanted to remind you that EWTN broadcasts the daily Mass live at 8am Eastern from Our Lady of the Angels Chapel on the EWTN campus in Irondale, Alabama. You can watch live on TV or online via streaming at ewtn.com/tv/watch-live.
You can also listen to the Mass live on the radio, SIRIUS/XM, or listen online at ewtn.com/radio/listen-live.
If you missed the live stream, you can get today's daily readings and homily at this link.
We encourage you to check your parish and diocese for the status of your local Mass, and ask that you would pray for healing and comfort for all those who are directly impacted by the virus.
God bless you,
Your EWTN Family
