Welcome to the website of Sacred Heart
Parish, Preston. It opens a new door to our
church which has welcomed many
parishioners and visitors since 1914.
We are an active and friendly community,
blessed with a wonderful spirit of hospitality.
We are an inclusive community and there is
a range of activities and ministries in which
parishioners can become involved. Our church has a special beauty and nobility that invites those who enter to prayer and reflection.
We welcome everyone to share their gifts and talents in the service of our community. If you are new to our parish, we hope you will find our church to be a friendly place to worship God. If you are looking for an excellent Catholic education for your child, we invite you to consider our Sacred Heart Primary School.
Since 2008 our parish has been served by priests from the international missionary Society of the Divine Word (SVD).
You are most welcome to join or visit us and we trust that you enjoy this website.
May the heart of Jesus live in our hearts and in the hearts of all people!
Sacred Heart Church is currently under renovation. It has been a fortunate co-incidence that while we have been focusing on the Parish Stewardship Program our much loved church has been getting a renovation of its own.
Stage One of renovations has been completed. It involved roof repairs and painting. Roofing specialists and painters have been applying all the skill and care to restore and improve the state of our church building for us to enjoy now and in the future.
At present, we are in Stage Two of renovations: electrical re-wiring. lighting and sound system.
This places extra requirements on Sacred Heart Parish for the resources to make this happen and if you would like to help us with a donation, your tax deductible contribution can be made to the parish. Please contact Fr Jan on 0400469540 for further details and, as always, we thank you for your generosity.
Our warmest welcome to all who celebrate with us, whether long time residents or those newly arrived in the Parish. Welcome to all guests and visitors. We thank God for you!
