Sacred Heart Parish will Celebrate
The Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, June 28-30
Join us for Mass, Detroit Tigers Baseball Trip and Ice Cream Social!
Mass - Friday, June 28 at 8:00 a.m.
The first Catholic Church in Mt. Pleasant was named Saint Charles Church. On August 6, 1872, three acres of land were donated to begin the building for a new church. It was completed in 1876 on Oak Street at Wisconsin Street. In 1888, a new church was dedicated as the Church of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus at the corner of Franklin and Illinois. The present Sacred Heart Church was dedicated in May of 1970. From the nucleus of 15 families to the present day number of 1,200 families, the Church of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus has grown in many dimensions. We are a faith filled community that practices the spiritual and corporal works of mercy, such as sheltering the homeless, feeding the hungry, visiting the sick, and providing the sacramental life of the Catholic Church to all who want to meet Christ. Throughout its history, Sacred Heart Church has been served by many dedicated pastors, assistant pastors, deacons and staff. Please join us in celebrating Sacred Heart Parish on The Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Friday, June 28 at the 8:00 a.m. Mass.
