The history of Sacred Heart Church is the story of its people. It is the story of people who for over one hundred and forty-one years have said, “WE BELIEVE.” The story of a church is not its buildings; it is the people who built them, and why they did it.


Sacred Heart is a diverse parish rooted in the Gospel of Jesus and in the heart of the community of Detroit. We strive to let our lives be an extension of our daily worship. We walk in the steps of Christ through love and concern for our brothers and sisters and continuously call upon the Holy Spirit for strength and power.


  • Ash Wednesday

    …Ash Wednesday. This coming Wednesday, February 14, 2018 (Valentine’s Day) is the beginning of our Lenten Journey. We will have two Masses to celebrate the beginning of this journey – Mass will be held at 12 noon and 6 p.m. Catholics and some Protestants celebrate Ash Wednesday. The name “Ash Wednesday” comes from the blessed ashes that are applied to the foreheads of the faithful. We receive them as a sign of the beginning of the season of Lent, the season of penance and preparation for Easter. Being marked with ashes is a public acknowledgement that one is a sinner, but from ashes, new life is possible.
