Welcome to our Catholic Faith Community
Sacred Heart in Hook is a beautiful Catholic Church located near Basingstoke, Hampshire. We are friendly, relaxed community and welcome people of all faiths, culture and status to join us.
New Online Course
We warmly invite you to join this six session course, delivered via Zoom starting November 26th.
The course is designed to give
practical help to those wishing to pray more in their daily lives and inspired by the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Online Advent Workshop
On Sunday 6th December, the 2nd Sunday of Advent we are going to hold an Advent Workshop for the children (and young at heart) of the parish.
We will be running this via Zoom during the Children’s Liturgy session from 11.15 for approx. an hour
Resuming Public Mass
Until 5th December there will be no public Masses celebrated in the parish. Funerals are the only exception and limited to 30 family and friends. Mass will continue to be live-streamed on our live page and our Facebook page.
It is with great joy then, that Mass with a congregation present will resume at Sacred Heart Church from the weekend of Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th December.
Mass will continue to be live-streamed on our live page and our Facebook page.
Mass will once again be available on Wednesday mornings at 10:00am from 9th December, followed by praying the Rosary. The church will close at 11:30.
Attendance needs to be booked and this can be done by email via email@example.com or by phone to Jan on 07719012955. More information is on page 3 of the newsletter and on our attending Mass page.
Please visit the Coronavirus page and attending Mass page for any last minute change.
1st Sunday in Advent
God’s Word (Mark 13:33-37) on this First Sunday of Advent reminds us that we are waiting for more than Christmas. We are waiting for the Day of the Lord which could come at any time.
Are we truly ready?
