_The Braun-Sacred Heart Center is pleased to announce that the annual coming together for Christmas Mass will take place at the regular time of 12:00 Noon on Christmas Day inside the old Sacred Heart Church. This is a time for celebration, for getting together, and for honoring the memory of those who have passed on.
This year we will have the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in the Chapel dedicated to her inside the church building. This is one of only two such images in the world. Her image will be displayed from 10 am to 2 pm.
