We are saddened to announce the passing to Eternal Life of
Reverend Father Patrick Kane
Father Pat was a true friend to all of us. He performed his Diaconate Ministry with us at Sacred Heart of Jesus ANCC.  After ordination to the priesthood he served as Associate Pastor of St. Francis of Assisi ANCC, Glen Ridge, NJ.  Father Pat also served as Co-Vocations Director of the ANCC.  Father Pat will always be remembered for his quick wit, down to earth interpretation of the Gospel and his commitment to social justice and defending God’s most helpless and vulnerable.
Our hearts are sad,
but our faith in the Resurrection is stronger!
You are a priest forever in the order of Melchidezek.
Welcome Home!

Sacred Heart of Jesus American National Catholic Church (ANCC) is an all embracing parish community of the American National Catholic Church. Sacred Heart of Jesus is a faith community in the Catholic tradition which embraces all into full participation in the sacramental life of the church.

We are a viable option for those seeking to feel at home in a valid Catholic community which strives to teach and live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We try to fulfill Christ’s admonition to love one another as God loves us. We are serious about making a difference in our world, and to that end make all of the sacraments of the Church available to all who ask. Our theology is informed by our belief that the Holy Spirit is calling us to participate in the re-creation and renewal of the Catholic Church. We trust that God has called us into existence to be a healing presence to those who feel that the Church has left them, and we welcome all to come home to a faith that lives and works in and through the People of God.

Sacred Heart of Jesus parish is a place for Contemporary Catholics, seeking to learn about God and God’s will, to reach out and share what they have learned and experienced. Our parish is guided by the inspired work of Vatican Council II, as we are ever mindful of the Council’s call to have the Church be the living Body of Christ in our world. We invite you to come and see what it’s like being an independent Catholic.

No matter who you are or where you’ve been–

All are Welcome Here.
