Hrvatska župa Srca Isusova

Welcome to Sacred Heart Parish!  For more than 100 years our parish has been dedicated to Jesus' Sacred Heart, which is full of love and mercy for every person.  Jesus said, "I AM the Way and the Truth and the Life." We try to respond to His Sacred Heart's love and mercy by embracing Him, who is the Truth, and by seeking to follow the Way to Life.  We invite you to join us on this journey!

Nationwide Mass here at Sacred Heart

During the Coronavirus epidemic, the widely known nationwide TV Mass - "The Heart of the Nation Catholic Mass" - has found a stable temporary home in our Sacred Heart Croatian Parish Church, stability amid all of the ever-changing complexities of Covid.

"The Heart of the Nation Catholic Mass" is a Milwaukee-based ministry to the elderly, the homebound and now those sheltering at home.

This TV Mass reaches people nationwide, bringing them a high-quality half-hour Mass every Sunday on broadcast, cable and satellite TV, and online. (Their Mass is broadcast from Honolulu, Hawaii to Portland, Maine!) Locally, they broadcast Mass Sundays on Channel 24 at 7 & 9 a.m. and on Relevant Radio 1640 AM at 7:30 p.m. Thanks be to God that we are able to help them serve those in need, including our own homebound and sheltering in place!

Here is a link to the latest "Heart of the Nation" Mass offered in our church (without any advertizing from Youtube):

Miraculous images of Our Lady with Child

Most visions of the Mother of God leave images only in the memories of the visionary.

But two times in Latin America the Mother of God left images of herself for all of us to see. We post two photos today, on December 12th, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe:

The first photo is of Our Lady of Guadalupe's miraculously imprinted image of her expecting the Child Jesus that ocurred in Mexico in 1531. This image is on the surface of a cactus-fiber cloth.

The second photo is of the far less famous Our Lady of Las Lajas in Colombia. ("Las Lajas" is Spanish for "the Rock Slabs.") Here Our Lady of Las Lajas (who profoundly resembles Our Lady of Guadalupe) holds the Child Jesus, with St. Dominic on the left and St. Francis of Assisi on the right. (The crowns worn by Jesus and Mary were added later by the grateful faithful.)


Amazingly this image from 1754 is imprinted in stone and not only on the surface of the rock slab but deep into the rock.

Sacred Heart Parish on Milwaukee Public TV

February 6, 2020 Milwaukee Public TV broadcast an episode of "Around the Corner with John McGivern" focused on the Story Hill neighborhood of Milwaukee, in which is located Sacred Heart Croatian Parish.

Wisconsin had the opportunity to see the interior of our church and to see John McGivern making Sarma with Mary Schauer.

The show lives on forever on Youtube. See this beautifully done 26-minute show by clicking on the link below:

(Sacred Heart pops up a moment 39 seconds into the show, but the main two-and-half minute segment is 20 minutes into the program. Seeing the whole show is a good idea.)
