About our Church

 Sacred Heart Parish was founded by Rev. McNamee in 1877. A small frame building was built at the corner of Second and Church Streets to serve as the first church for the new parish. It was dedicated in 1881. The first pastor was the Reverend J. H. May.  The Reverend Adolph Holtschneider became pastor in 1904 and guided the construction of our present church which was dedicated on November 24, 1918. The church underwent renovation in 1988.
