Filipino-American Ministry of 

Sacred Heart Catholic Church

Filipino-Americans growing in the Catholic Faith together through

 Prayer, Study, Service, and Community

Mission and History

In 2015, the Filipino-American Ministry of Sacred Heart, also known as FAM, was founded. What was once a small group of 2-3 people, grew into a community centered on prayer and service. From partaking in Simbang Gabi, an Advent tradition in the Philippines, to providing food and serving in Sacred Heart’s Food Pantry, FAM takes the caring, generous, and faith-filled characteristics of a Filipino and shares them with the communities we are a part of. A ministry open to all, FAM encourages everyone to be active members of the Church and helps others deepen and strengthen their faith by offering activities inspired by the Four Pillars of Dominican Spirituality: Prayer, Study, Apostolate (service), and Community.
