Welcome to Sacred Heart Church

Welcome to Sacred Heart Church, Bilton, Rugby. We are a Roman Catholic parish, part of the Archdiocese of Birmingham. Our parish priest is Father Gerry Murray. Weekend Masses are on Saturdays at 5pm and on Sundays at 9.30am (with children’s liturgy).  This is our mission statement:

Sacred Heart Catholic Parish, Rugby is a Eucharistic community responding to God’s universal call to holiness by witnessing to Gospel values. Inspired by the Holy Spirit we welcome everyone, we worship together, we care for other people and for the environment, and we work for the common good in our community.

New: live streaming of services

We have now managed successfully to launch a streamed Mass instead of recorded Mass from Sacred Heart.  So instead of recorded, we will now be switching to live streaming. You may have to allow a few minutes at the advertised starting time and wait until it goes live. 

Sunday Mass will be live at 9.30am. You are invited to join us. You can also watch it later as a recording. 

Weekday Mass will be live at 10am. This Mass is available later as a recording.  Note this week there  will be no Mass on Thursday 11th June. 

Mass is on our YouTube Channel: sacred heart, bilton.

Fr Gerry and Fr Graham are keeping well and looking forward to meeting you all again when the situation improves. Plans are going ahead slowly for the opening of Churches for private prayer and we will let you know when the diocese has plans in place for this. Please remember us in your prayers as we remember you in our prayers and Masses. 

The services can also be watched at a later time on YouTube in case you aren’t able to join the live broadcast.

An update from Sacred Heart

Here is an update from Father Gerry and Father Graham to all parishioners.

Hope everyone is keeping well and safe. We continue to remember in our prayers and Masses those suffering in the pandemic, those working in the health and caring services and those who have died and their grieving families and friends. 

Masses from the Parish

As many of you will know we have been recording and putting on YouTube our Masses on Weekdays and Sundays. Once celebrated they are uploaded to YouTube as soon as possible, the process takes a little time.

My Jesus,
I believe you are present in this Holy Sacrament of the altar.

Come spiritually into my soul
So that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever.
Amen.

However we are now going to record certain Masses and put them immediately on YouTube so you can access them shortly after they have been celebrated. Some of this week’s Masses are there already.

Follow this link to Youtube. If you subscribe then you can find the link more easily another time. The key search words are Sacred Heart, Bilton.
