Sacred Heart

Our Mission Statement

"You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
And you shall love your neighbor as yourself."  Matthew 22:37,39

 

 

We, the people of God in the parish of Sacred Heart, are a faith community believing in Jesus, proclaiming God's Kingdom and sharing the mystery of faith by worshipping the Father, enabling all members to grow in their relationship with each other through the Son, and witnessing our gifts through active service to others in the Spirit.

 

History

Built in 1873, our Historic Church as it presently stands, was dedicated on May 21, 1887, as a mission of St. Charles, Pikesville, Maryland. Many dedicated families worked and prayed for the independent parish church that was established in 1946, with Fr. Francis J. Egan as its first Pastor.

 

In an effort to provide the proper worship space for a growing community that now numbers over 3,300 families, our new church was dedicated February 19, 1993. The original, historic church was renovated for its 125th anniversary in 1998, and now serves as a place for daily Mass and personal devotion.

 

The parish school as we know it today was dedicated November 4, 1956, under the direction of the Sisters of Charity, Greensburg, PA, who staffed the school until June 1984. In 1999, a campaign and building program was undertaken to enlarge the school facility. Sacred Heart School currently has an enrollment of 755 students from pre-school through 8th grade.
