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.

This week’s Gospel is from Matthew 14:13-21. This miracle – “the feeding of the 5000” – was an act of kindness and loving thoughtfulness on the part of Christ. He saw the people’s need – it was late for them to return to their homes and they had not eaten eaten anything all day, and so He worked a miracle to provide for this need. The miracle also helped to convince the people of Galilee who He was, so news spread around quickly that He was the expected Messiah, and it prepared the way for the announcement of the greatest miracle of all – the miracle of the Eucharist.
