“Come home, and worship with us – all are welcome in this church.”
“From the earliest history of mankind, it has been known that men and women always looked for some sacred stone, some sacred place or some sacred building where they could worship their God. “Because whereas it is true that God is everywhere, it is also true that in the old Testament, the prophet made it very clear that God wanted a temple for the people to gather to worship Him.” “It is for this reason that we are wont to call churches “the house of God”. This is particularly true of our Catholic churches because of the Eucharistic present of our Lord Jesus Christ, as well as the fact that where two or three are gathered together in His name, He promised He would be among them.”
“Sacred Heart has a distinguished history, blessed with the presence of many distinguished priests, religious, and lay people. It has its own dignity as an architectural beauty. It is intertwined in the lives of literally hundreds of thousands of people living and dead. It is part of the basic culture of Morgan City, of St. Mary Parish, and of our Diocese.” – Bishop Warren Boudreaux – deceased
