Friends of Sacred Heart

Friends of Sacred Heart consists of a group of parishioners who are dedicated and committed to the preservation of our heritage through the collection and protection of parish archives, educational programs and tours, as well as the ongoing maintenance of our historic church building.

The ongoing mission of Friends of Sacred Heart is to provide financial support to the parish for major maintenance and repair projects to all of the parish buildings as well as to preserve the history of our parish, supervise the parish archives, publish literature to capture the beauty of the church buildings and stained glass windows, maintain the parish museum, and run Docent-led tours of the church.

Funds for this preservation ministry are raised through:

  • Annual Memberships
  • Donations and Special Gifts
  • Floral Tributes at Easter and Christmas
  • Tours of the Church
  • Memorials and Tributes for Loved Ones
