Letter from Father Dominic


Dear Friend of the Sacred Heart,

Lent is a time when God calls us to turn away from sin and selfishness and return to Him. We commit to being less self-centered and more self-giving.

To do so, we make sacrifices. It’s common to talk of “giving up” something for Lent in ways that imply deprivation. But did you know that sacrifice literally means to make holy?

So, this year, I invite you to think of your Lenten sacrifice as an opportunity to “let go” and release whatever keeps us from living closer to God. If we “give up” something for Lent, let it be pettiness, hurtful feelings, anger or anything that stands in our way of opening our hearts to the light of Jesus.

In this season, I am profoundly aware of your heartfelt support to our ministry. Please accept my sincerest gratitude.

On behalf of the Priests of the Sacred Heart, I want to thank you for your friendship. Your prayers and generosity enable our priests and brothers to preach the message of Christ’s love and peace throughout the world.

Be assured that you and your intentions will be remembered in our daily Masses and prayers.

May our sacrifices bring us nearer to the Heart of Jesus as we rejoice in His resurrection.

Sincerely in Christ,

Father Dominic
