Holy Week is a journey into the Heart of the Gospel. We hope that you will make room for God during your busy life as it intersects with this Holy Week. It is a matter of the heart. It is at the center of our Christian Faith.
If you’ve never attended the events of Holy Week, here’s a little bit more about them, including what you can expect. To read more about the Triduum, click here.
For Catholics around the world, Lent and meatless meals go hand in hand. But if you’re not exactly hooked on fish, there is an alternative. Give it up for soup. For Sacred Heart, Lenten Soup Suppers have become a Friday night tradition. They not only provide parishioners with an opportunity to observe their meat-free Fridays, they also bolster a sense of fellowship and belonging.
Remember a loved one during the Easter season with a floral memorial used to decorate our sanctuary. A long-standing tradition, each plant that you see has been given in remembrance or honor of loved ones whose names will be memorialized online.
Request forms can be found on the table near the church entrance, or download one here. All forms, along with the suggestion donation of $15 per plant, must be received by Monday, March 26th.
Friends of Sacred Heart thanks everyone for their participation in this seasonal project. Proceeds are used for maintenance, repair, and upkeep of our beautiful, historic church.
Looking for another way to enrich your Lenten journey? Join us on Tuesday, March 20th, at 7:00 pm in the church for an evening of meditation and reflection centered on the “Women of Jerusalem.” Through word, music, and meditation, we will look at Jesus’ journey to the Place of the Skull from the viewpoint of the women whose lives had been impacted by the words and actions of Jesus.
If you’ve never attended this event, see what two of our parishioners who’ve had a role in the past had to say.
Please be advised that over the next two weekends, there will be two Gasparilla events at Curtis Hixon Park that will affect parking in downtown Tampa:
– Gasparilla Festival of the Arts / March 3rd – 4th
– Gasparilla Music Festival / March 10th – 11th
Due to the increased traffic in and around downtown Tampa, parking may be more difficult to find. Options include:
– Using the Madison Building parking garage
– Finding available street parking
– Paying the asking rate at one of the nearby commercial parking lots
Please note: The parking lot located at the corner of W. Kennedy Blvd. and N. Florida Ave. will not be available for parishioners on either weekend. The parking garage in the Madison Building will be available for Mass, however, if you plan to stay after Mass to attend either event, please pay the posted rate or move your car. Thank you.
Enrich your Lenten journey with an evening of uplifting music and reflection with renowned Catholic music artist, John Angotti. The Sacred Heart Lenten Mission is open to all in the parish and offers something for all ages.
