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

Welcome to our website. Parish information can be found here any time during the week, as well as many aspects of our faith.

Please note that from 19th July, when COVID restrictions will ease, nothing will change in our parish. We will continue to ware face covering, be socially distance and using the booking form. As you will see from the news letter, we are aiming in September (all being well) to begin the new normal within our parish. The PPC are in regular contact with Fr Paul in how this can be done in a safe environment.

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.

From September we are hoping to return to our Sunday morning Liturgy. To enable us to do this we need your help. If anyone would like to be part of running a session or helping out on a rota basis, please get in touch with Fiona by emailing Fiona.Cooper@live.com

Thank you


Dear Lord our heavenly father, we pray that over the summer holidays our parish can look towards welcoming us all once again, so we can meet our friends on a Sunday morning and listening to the Word of God in our Children’s Liturgy. We pray for our parish family in these weeks ahead and look forward to celebrating as children in the time ahead of us. Amen

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
