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.
Sadly, due to the latest COVID outbreaks and local restrictions, Mass will now be live streamed only.
The World Day of Prayer this year will be different from any we have ever known.
All over the world, people will be worshipping on the day as usual but in unusual ways. The Day of Prayer is not only a global event: it is also an important date in every local ecumenical calendar and so we will be live streaming the service from Sacred Heart Hook at 2pm on Friday 5th March. We have a few service books and if you live in Hook we can get one to you if you let us know asap. Email email@example.com
Can you lend us your skill, time or even wool? Are you a keen knitter? Good at crocheting or sewing?
Would you like to get together with a group of like minded friends over a cup of tea (virtually for now) and knit pieces of a patchwork blanket that we can put together to form a prayer blanket? While we’re unable to physically meet, let’s virtually meet and chat while we put together these blankets which will be blessed by Fr Paul and sent to those in the parish who are sick or in need of some comfort. Please reach out to Andrea – firstname.lastname@example.org.
