The oldest Catholic church in Fayette County, Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Springdale, will be the scene of an outdoor Sunday Mass on Sunday, September 6, at 11:30 a.m. The Church was established in 1876.
Traditionally, Sunday Mass is celebrated in the Sacred Heart Church on the Sundays closest to Memorial Day, Labor Day, and the Feast of All Souls. However, the Mass on Labor Day weekend will be outdoors and there will not be the traditional picnic lunch following the Mass. Facial masks are required and social distances will be observed.
The historic church is a chapel in the mission area of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rainelle and also serves as a Chapel for St. Patrick’s Catholic parish in Hinton.
The church is located off the Springdale/Smoot Road which is accessible from WV 20 in Springdale and from I-64 using the Dawson exit.
Father Romeo Bacalsos SVD will officiate at the Mass. He is the pastor of St. Patrick’s Church in Hinton.
