Please join us for our 28th Annual Christmas Day Mass
and Community Gathering on Friday, December 25, 2015
Time: 12 Noon
Where: Old Sacred Heart Church
16th Street and Buckeye Rd
The Braun-Sacred Heart Center is pleased to announce that the annual coming together for Christmas Mass will take place at the regular time of 12:00 Noon on Christmas Day inside the old Historic Sacred Heart Church. This is a time for celebration, for getting together, and for honoring the memory of those who have passed on. As in past years, the best approach to Sacred Heart is from the west at 16th Street.
American Legion Post 41 will have a display on the history of the Post. We are very honored to have the continuous participation and support of Post 41. Few people actually remember how segregated Phoenix was up to World War II. Post 41 and its members played a major role in desegregating the city. Over the decades, the membership of Post 41 has served our country with distinction and returned to engage in continued community service. WE SALUTE YOU!
Jimmie Muñoz and family will have a display on the history of Golden Gate and Sacred Heart Parish. (Always a focal point of fond memories.)
