6th Annual Sacred Heart Congress

October 14, 2017 

Saturday 8:00 AM – 1:15 PM

Christ The King 

2777 E. Livington Ave.

Columbus Ohio 43209

While the primary task of Sacred Heart Columbus is to promote devotion to the Sacred Heart through the practice of Enthroning the Sacred Heart in homes, schools, and businesses, we also seek to assist the faithful in deepening their knowledge of the Lord and His Sacred Heart through catechesis.  To accomplish this noble task of offering catechesis and spreading the Truth of Jesus Christ, there is offered on a yearly basis a Congress of the Sacred Heart. At these Congresses, usually offered in the Fall of the Year, we gather together as a community of the faithful to learn more about God’s love for the human person as evidenced in the mysterious yet definite love of the Sacred Heart for all of humanity.
