Home Enthronement of the Sacred Heart

Legion of Mary 

The Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in your home is an act of adoration that publicly declares Jesus as “Lord of the Household.” It is more than setting aside a dwelling place for Him in a building; it is the welcoming of the Reign of Christ into the heart of the family who dwells within that place. He becomes the central focus.


For more information or to schedule an Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in your home, please pick up a pamphlet in the church narthex or send an e-mail.

To our contributing families and individuals, thank you for your continued support and generosity.
