Sacred Heart Parish in Southeast Portland is operating much like other parishes in the pandemic, said Father Bob Barricks, pastor at the church.

Father Barricks is livestreaming daily Mass at 11 a.m., preceded by the Rosary at 10:40 a.m. and Sunday Mass at 10 a.m.

The parish sends out parish news updates twice weekly and the website is updated regularly.

“I’m writing about every three days,” said Father Barricks, depending on how the Holy Spirit moves him as he writes about life and spirituality as Catholics.

“It’s been fun,” he said.

The priest is also offering reconciliation outside the parish rectory whenever someone wants to set up an appointment, as well as spiritual direction over FaceTime.
