NEW ADDRESS FOR MONSIGNOR LAWRENCE AS OF JUNE 21, 2021
611 Lopax Road
Harrisburg, PA 17112-4388
June is the month of the Sacred Heart, and we turn to Jesus with expectant hope, entrusting all our hopes and fears to Him. The future can be uncertain during this unusual time, but we put our faith in Him who does not disappoint. Devotion to the wounded heart of Jesus has its origins in the eleventh century, when pious Christians meditated on the Five Wounds of Christ. It was not until 1670, however, that a French priest, Fr. Jean Eudes, celebrated the first Feast of the Sacred Heart.
