Important update regarding COVID-19 and liturgies at Sacred Heart Monastery

Please note that effective March 17, 2020, all liturgies at Sacred Heart Monastery will be closed to the public due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.  This closure will be through April 5, 2020, at which time the situation will be reevaluated.  This step is being taken not out of fear but out of love for and a desire to protect our Sisters, guests, and neighbors.  We will keep all of you close in prayer during this time.  Please pray for us, too, as we remain always united in Christ.
