Sacred Heart Parish in Susanville will celebrate its centennial on June 23-24; Bishop Soto to celebrate Mass on June 24 at 11 a.m.
Sacred Heart Parish in Susanville, established in 1912, is celebrating 100 years of meeting the spiritual needs of the Catholic community in Lassen County and invites the Catholic community to be a part of this momentous occasion.
The milestone will be celebrated by parishioners throughout the year and during a special weekend of events on Saturday and Sunday, June 23-24.
A dinner dance following the 5 p.m. Mass on June 23 will be held in Msgr. Moran Hall from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Dinner choices include tri-tip or pasta for $25 per person and a no-host bar will be available. The event, open to the public, is a fundraiser intended to help with costs associated with centennial events.
Bishop Jaime Soto will preside at a centennial Mass on June 24 at 11 a.m., joined by Father Ambrose Ugwuegbu, pastor, and other priests of the diocese. There will be a dedication of a historic bell donated by the Ladies of the Sacred Heart. The bell's chimes were first heard in Susanville on Oct. 27, 1912. A special program and luncheon will be held in the hall in the afternoon. All Catholics are encouraged to attend this free event.
