Sacred Heart of Jesus
established  1875

We, the parishioners of Sacred Heart
of Jesus Parish, commit to continue
our Franciscan tradition since 1875. 

We pledge to provide time, energy, and financial resources to communicate
God' message of love and mercy
to each other and to our neighbors. 

Spiritual growth is our greatest priority.  Through our ministries we will grow
more vibrant as a community of faith. 

We pray for the strength and guidance to
carry out our mission of love and caring.

    We entrust our parish to God
who makes our mission possible.
