"THIS IS THE LORD'S PLACE AND THE WAY TO HEAVEN"
An appropriate paraphrase of the Psalm to describe SACRED HEART PARISH, which has so diligently served the immigrant Germans and their descendants in this community since 1870, and then to be joined by the immigrant Italians and their descendants since 1969, from the original site on 5th and Broadway. Spiritual service is now rendered to all who come to worship the Lord at Sacred Heart.

Rest in Peace!
It is with great sadness that we pass along the news that longtime Pastor, Fr. Mario Rauzi, c.s, passed away on June 14 in California. Please remember him in your prayers, that he may enter into his eternal reward. A special Mass will be planned for sometime in July for Sacred Heart to mourn and pray for this generous priest. May he rest in peace and may the angels lead him into paradise!
