When you Visit
Visiting a new church can be intimidating: What should I wear? Where do I park? Where do my kids go?

We understand the many thoughts that can come from visiting a new church, so we want you to feel completely comfortable when you visit. Below are some frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to contact us or talk with an usher when you visit.

When is confession available?
Saturdays 3:30-4:30 pm

How do I get to Sacred Heart Catholic Church?
Our address is 811 S Latah St, Boise.  The church in located on the corner of Latah and Cassia.

Where should I park?
Please use the parking lot attached to the church and school.

Where do my children go?
Our church does not have a Crying Room so children stay with their parents during Mass.

I’m not Catholic ... so, how do I know when to sit, stand and kneel?
There is a booklet available in the Narthex (entry area; table just inside the main doors) that explains what to do.  You are welcome to use it during Mass.

I’m not Catholic ... is it okay for me to participate in communion?
You may not receive communion, but you may receive a blessing from the priest.  Cross your arms over your chest to let him know you'd like a blessing.

Am I expected to put money in the offering?
Only if you'd like to.  We have many parishioners who donate once a month or use our online donation system.

I have a hearing problem. Is there any special assistance?
We do have hearing devices that can be checked out prior to Mass.  Just contact one of the ushers.
