Welcome to Sacred Heart! 

Located in an historic neighborhood and having its own rich history, this Catholic community is devoted to the love of God revealed in the heart of Jesus Christ. We contemplate this love in prayer and study, receive this love in the Eucharist, and seek to share this love with others.

You are welcome at Sacred Heart parish. You are welcome to join in our community. You are welcome to come learn and serve with us. And, most importantly, you are welcome to come pray and worship with us.
