First Friday Devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Words of the Sacred Heart
"Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am meek and humble of Heart; and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy, and My burden light."  (Mt. 11:28-30)


Beginning 4 January 2019, the Knights of Columbus Woodlawn Council 2161 Traditional Latin Mass Guild will host First Friday devotions to the Sacred Heart at St. Titus Church, 952 Franklin Avenue, Aliquippa PA 15001, to include 6:30 PM Confession & Holy Rosary and 7:00 PM Low Mass, followed by the Litany of the Sacred Heart, Act of Reparation & Act of Consecration.  These First Friday Masses are in addition to the 3rd Sunday of the month, 12 noon, Latin Masses.  View the complete 2019 Traditional Latin Mass schedule here.

Twelve Promises of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to St. Margaret Mary
1.  "I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life."
2.  "I will give peace in their families."
3.  "I will console them in all their troubles."
4.  "They shall find in My Heart an assured refuge during life and especially at the hour of death."
5.  "I will pour abundant blessings on all their undertakings."
6.  "Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and the infinite ocean of mercy."
7.  "Tepid souls shall become fervent."
8.  "Fervent souls shall speedily rise to great perfection."
9.  "I will bless every place where a picture of My Heart shall be set up and honored."
10.  "I will give priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts."
11.  "Those who propagate this devotion shall have their name written in My Heart, and it shall never be effaced."
12.  "The all-powerful love of My Heart will grant to all those who shall receive Communion on the First Friday of nine consecutive months the grace of final repentance; they shall not die under my displeasure, nor without receiving their Sacraments; My Heart shall be their assured refuge at that last hour.

Cor Jesu sacratissimum, miserere nobis.  (Most sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!)

Report: Eucharistic Procession, 15 July 2018

On Sunday, 15 July 2018, the Knights of Columbus Woodlawn Council 2161 Traditional Latin Mass Guild organized a Eucharistic Procession after the 12 noon, 3rd Sunday of the Month Latin Mass at St. Titus Church in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania.

Fr. Ladis J. Cizik offers Mass for the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost.

The intentions for the procession were threefold:
  • In Reparation for sins committed against the Sacred Heart of Jesus & the Immaculate Heart of Mary;
  • To invoke God's blessing & protection for the people of Aliquippa and Beaver County; and
  • That our government officials may discharge their duties in Justice & Truth.


The ceremonies began with an Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus before the Blessed Sacrament exposed.  Fr. Ladis J. Cizik was joined by Fr. Mykhaylo Shkyndya, Pastor of St. George Byzantine Catholic Church, Aliquippa, and Fr. Joachim Morgan, OSB, Parochial Vicar, St. Titus Parish.


Fr. Cizik exits St. Titus Church with the Blessed Sacrament.


Banners, flags, and icons from the following organizations processed behind the Blessed Sacrament: Knights of Columbus Woodlawn Council 2161, St. Titus Holy Name Society, St. Titus Men's Fellowship, St. Titus Christian Mothers and Women's Guild, St. George Byzantine Catholic Church, and the Beaver Valley Blue Army.


Fr. Cizik carried the Blessed Sacrament in procession down Franklin Avenue to City Hall while St. Titus organist, Richard Shyan, played hymns on the church carillon.


An altar was erected in the City Hall parking lot for the recitation of the Litany of the Sacred Heart and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.


The procession from City Hall back to St. Titus Church.


The Aliquippa Police Department provided an escort for the procession.


Upon returning to St. Titus Church, the faithful prayed the Litany of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord and the Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart before concluding the ceremonies with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.


The Knights of Columbus Woodlawn Council 2161 thanks the following individuals and organizations for their support in making this Eucharistic Procession possible:

Fr. Martin Bartel, OSB, Administrator of St. Titus Parish
The Hon. Dwan B. Walker, Mayor of the City of Aliquippa &
Aliquippa City Council
Acting Police Chief Robert Sealock &
The Aliquippa Police Department

Woodlawn Council thanks the following officials and dignitaries who participated in the Eucharistic Procession:

David J. Lozier, Beaver County District Attorney
Tony Guy, Beaver County Sheriff
Congressman Keith Rothfus
George David, Retired Beaver County Sheriff
Hon. James F. DiBenedetto, Retired Magisterial District Judge

Woodlawn Council also thanks the Pittsburgh Latin Mass Community, Inc., for providing extensive liturgical and logistical support.
