Welcome to the parish of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in Loughborough.

During these past weeks , Fr Paul has been sharing with us how we can follow Jesus by spending time in prayer, reading from the bible and listening to our Lord. We are a parish family who may not be able to meet, or worship like we would normally in these present times together, however we all have one thing in common, Our Lord, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Children’s Liturgy

Please keep checking out this webpage whilst we are not able to meet.

Who are we? We are a group of children who want to learn more about Jesus. Whilst we can not meet in the church, due to the present situation, we can still listen to the stories written and sing and dance to the music shared with us each week. This will help us all stay connected as a group until we are able to meet again each Sunday.

Prayer: Dear Lord, I pray we all look after each other, as Jesus looks after us. I pray for family and friends, and for our parish we continue to serve. Lord I pray for this world of many challenges, and needing to do things differently to what we would prefer. Lord Jesus I know we are not alone and you are with us. We may not see but we know you will be holding our hands carrying us with your love. Amen
