Sacred Heart Church

Sacred Heart has reopened for Masses!

 
While we do have an adjusted schedule, we are thrilled to continued to offer three different Mass participation options...
 
Please note: Effective this weekend (per new guidelines from the state and RCAB) parishioners are no longer required to register ahead for the Indoor Mass at 4PM on Sat. OR the Drive-In Mass at 10AM on Sunday.
The sign-up links have been removed.
 
1. Drive-in Masses - Sundays at 10:00AM
Drive-In Mass will continue throughout Labor Day as weather permits.
At the Drive-In Masses, those who are vaccinated are no longer required to wear masks as they approach for communion upon exiting the parking lot. Those who wish to wear masks are welcomed to do so.
**Due to the nature of the Drive-In, we ask that all parishioners still REMAIN IN VEHICLES before, during and after Mass. Since many people need to keep cars running for AC and radio access, we do not want parishioners walking between and around cars to prevent accidents.
If you wish to visit with fellow parishioners you can do so by attending the Indoor Mass at 4PM or visiting off the church property after Mass has concluded.
 
2. Live Streamed & Recorded Masss. 
Live Mass will be streamed at 4PM every Saturday. Access the live stream by clicking here.
Recorded Masses will be available for viewing on our YouTube page each weekend upated every Sat. at 5PM.
Please note that the Cardinal's dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass during this time to the Catholics of the Archdiocese of Boston remains in effect. Those who have health concerns or are high risk should continue to join us virtually from the comfort and safety of home. 
 
3. Indoor Mass - Saturdays at 4:00PM.
At Indoor Masses, those who are vaccinated are no longer required to wear masks. Those who wish to wear masks are welcomed to do so. Pews are still marked for social distancing to allow those who wish to keep some distance to do so.

Bristol Lodge Soup Kitchen

Throughout the pandemic we have been especially grateful to our Bristol Lodge Coordinator, Denise, and the small group of parishioners who have dedicated themselves to providing our monthly meal on the 1st Wednesday of each month. With their support we have not missed one month even throughout the Covid-19 shutdown.

As we prepare for the summer, we know the Soup Kitchen will start getting busier. If you are able to help cook a portion of the meal OR if you able to purchase food or snacks to go with the meal, we would appreciate your assistance. 

Click here to find the monthly menu & sign up. Please read the note on the Sign Up Genius with details about food drop off locations & times.
