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.
