What is a Dehonian parish?
What does it mean to be a Dehonian parish? Is it simply a church that has an SCJ as its pastor, or is there something more, something tangibly “Dehonian?” That was one of the primary questions discussed during a recent Dehonian Parish Ministers meeting.Read More
Celebrating collaboration and commitment in SD
“This is holy ground. There is a Dehonian spirit here that has been present for over 100 years.

Celebrating where it all began!
The last of the three Centennial celebrations for the US Province of the Priests of the Sacred Heart (Dehonians) was held on July 30 in the place where it all began: Lower Brule, SD. It was there in 1923 that Fr. Mathias Fohrman, an SCJ priest from the German Province, first celebrated Mass at St. Mary’s parish. Dozens of SCJs from around the world joined parishioners for the celebration.
We continue to remember and pray

Anthony please contact the Franklin Police Department at: 414-425-2522.Read More
