Welcome to our Parish!

We, the Roman Catholic community of Sacred Heart Croatian parish, are a family of diverse people united through faith in Jesus Christ. We accept our baptismal call: to proclaim and witness the good news of the gospel; to live and work together as brothers and sisters; to celebrate God’s goodness in the sacraments and sacred scriptures; to serve all with justice, peace, and love in the name of the Lord. Embracing all, as a faith community, we promise to grow together to bring about the promise of God’s kingdom on earth.


Alan amesAlan Ames, Witness of God's Love and Healing. Alan Ames was born in London in 1953. In his youth, he was a member of a motorcycle-gang, living a life of violence and alcohol. After his marriage, he moved to Australia with his family. The turning point of his life happened in 1993 when Alan saw his past life displayed before him and experienced how his sins had hurt God. He saw how Jesus offered him forgiveness from the Cross. After some struggle, Alan accepted the forgiveness offered by Jesus. The Lord helped Alan to come back to the sacraments and the Church and changed his hatred and pain into Love. Later, God called Alan to be one of his witnesses, sent to carry God's love and hope in to the world. Alan has been given many gifts of the Holy Spirit which are evident in the healing sessions following his talk. There have been many reported miracles and cures, both physical and spiritual.For the past 21 years, Alan has traveled extensively to countries throughout the world, giving witness to his conversion from a man of sin to one who has a close intimate relationship with God and the Roman Catholic Church. On June 10th, he will speak to you about what God has shared with him. Most of the revelation that has been revealed to Alan has all been written down in book form and will be available (both in English & Spanish) for those interested after the service. Worldwide, his message of God's love and forgiveness has touched many hearts. The evening will begin with Mass at 6:30pm, after Mass Alan Ames will speak. After Alan talk there will be a free will Love Offering for his traveling expenses. The Exposition of Blessed Sacrament and healing Service will follow.
