On August 21 there was a Mass of Reception of the Discipulos de Jesus with Bishop Joe Vasquez. It was also the celebration of the 5th anniversary of the arrival of the sisters, Discipulas de Jesus. The Mother Superior and Father Superior of the respective orders were there to celebrate. This is Sacred Heart Parish today, a permanent staff, five sisters and three brothers (2 priests and a brother), Discipulos de Jesus. The community will get to experience the fullness of the Church.
Kevin just graduated from San Juan Diego High School, one of our partner schools. He will be attending the University of Dallas in the fall. Catholic education transforms the lives of the children in our program. Thank you to all who made it possible!
We find ourselves reflecting on the effects of this pandemic affecting our communities, and yet we find joy and hope in the Resurrection of the Lord.
Amplify your support for Our Kids at Heart!

HAVE YOU READ OUR KIDS AT HEART ARTICLE FROM UD?
“You bring me a letter of acceptance to a Catholic school for your child, and I promise your child will attend Catholic school.” This is the promise Father Mark Hamlet, BA ’68 MBA ’70, makes to his congregation at every Mass. The pastor of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Austin, Hamlet has spent much of his ministry advocating for Catholic school education through his nonprofit foundation, Our Kids at Heart.
May your days be filled with peace, hope, and joy this holiday season.
Thanks to God’s grace and your support, we have been able to provide opportunities for more than 150 students from the poorest families to experience Catholic education.
