Advent Prayer Service 2020

This year, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic our usual Advent Vesper Service will be replaced with an Advent Prayer Service in preparation of repentance, meditation and penance for Advent. On the Sundays of December 6th, 13th, and 20th, you are invited to join us at 4:00 PM in the church for our Advent Prayer Service.

Liturgical Schedule - Advent 2020

The latest schedule for Advent 2020 at Sacred Heart - Christmas Mass, New Year's Mass, and more in the Quad Cities.

Veteran's Day 2020

Due to COVID-19 protocols, we will not be having our usual Veterans Day celebration. Instead, we will have a Eucharistic celebration on November 11th at our 8:00 AM Mass. At the end of Mass, we will offer a special blessing for all the veterans present. Veterans are invited to wear their uniforms or other military insignia.

Family to Family 2020

Family to Family letters have been mailed out to our parish families and due to the coronavirus, our Family to Family program will function a little differently this year. Instead of adopting a family for gift buying, we are asking for monetary donations, so gift cards can be provided for those families in need of gifts and food.

Advent Prayer Services

Sacred Heart will host an Advent Prayer Service this year, which will be a little different format than our Advent Vespers Service. It will be an inspiring evening of joined prayer and reflection for unity in our country. Due to COVID-19, there will not be a social gathering after the service, but we invite you to join us for prayer combined with singing by the parish Cantors

Outdoor Mass Ending

The 9:00 a.m. Outdoor Mass will end for the year the weekend of October 4. The following weekend Oct 10 & 11 all Masses will be held in the church in honor of the Dedication and Blessing of the Church Windows. Registration online for all weekend Masses will continue until further notice. Please go to our website at: to register or call the parish office 309-762-2362 and a staff person will assist you.

Stained Glass Window Blessing

On Saturday, October 10 at our 4:00pm Mass and on Sunday, October 11 at our 7:00am, 9:00am and 11:00am Masses we will have a special blessing of our stained glass windows. Mark your calendars now for this beautiful event and look for more information in the bulletins, online and in the October Heartbeat.

2020 Annual Diocesan Appeal

We will be conducting most of our appeal by mail this year. A letter, pledge card, and return envelope will be mailed to your home. You can give to the Annual Diocesan Appeal with a one-time gift or make a pledge that is payable over eight months.

Our New Coadjutor Bishop

On May 11, 2020, the Vatican announced that His Holiness, Pope Francis, had appointed the Reverend Louis Tylka, a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago, as the Coadjutor Bishop of the Diocese of Peoria.

Our Window Project Continues
