By means of the decree, the Apostolic Penitentiary “confirms and extends for the entire month of November 2021 all the spiritual benefits already granted on 22 October 2020” – that is, it allows the faithful to gain plenary indulgences for the souls in purgatory by visiting a cemetery on every day in November and praying for those who have died; normally, the indulgence is limited to the first eight days of the month. A second plenary indulgence is also established for the day of the commemoration of the faithful departed, All Souls’ Day, November 2. The current decree allows the faithful to obtain that indulgence for the benefit of the deceased on any day of November, at their choice.

Adoult Choir


Sacred Heart adult choir is made up of volunteers who enjoy music.  Contrary to popular opinion, some choir members do not read music.  All we require is that you have a love of music, can carry a tune, are willing to give up one night a week, and desire to worship in song.


We sing at the 11:00 am Sunday Mass.  The choir supports the congregation for hymns, sings a special song at the Communion and will sometimes sing an appropriate Choral Introit prior to the start of Mass.  Our music is selected from classical, Latin, contemporary and traditional sources.   Music is given to the singers well in advance, and for Easter and Christmas additional masses are required. 


For Christmas the choir provides a 30 minute musical prelude to the Midnight Mass.  For Easter the choir provides all musical liturgy for Holy Week and Easter Vigil as well as Easter Sunday morning.
