Frequent Questions (FAQ)

Important: Construction work at Sacred Heart Church has necessitated a change of venue for our High Holy Day services.  We are grateful to the Church of Latter-Day Saints for welcoming us into their Saratoga Stake Church, a large, religiously neutral, air-conditioned sanctuary with ample parking located at 19100 Allendale Avenue.  The building has many classrooms which will enable our Religious School program to be at the church as well.

For more detailed information, please see the schedule of services.
