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!
Likely from a heart attack, a dear young husband, father and parishioner, Ryan Jones, died November 14. Our prayers and sympathy go out to Angela and their children and many friends and relatives!
In this shock, a friend of the family was so kind as to offer in addition to many prayers, a go-fund-me page to help, as we are able, the family with some material support.
May God reward everyone's kindness in this tragic time.
When Sacred Heart Parish is broadcasting a Holy Mass "live" via Facebook, click on this blue text and you will go to our Parish Facebook page, where you will be able to find the "live" Holy Mass somewhat down on the page. (After these Masses, you can see the recorded copies of these Masses by clicking the "Videos" button on our Parish Facebook that you reach by clicking this blue text.) The schedule for livestreamed Holy Masses is: 4:30 p.m. Saturdays, 9 a.m. Sundays, and, in Croatian, 11:00 a.m. Sundays (this new 11 a.m. time is a temporary time for the 10:30 Mass in order to allow for cleaning the pews after the 9 a.m. Mass). https://www.facebook.com/SacredHeartMilwaukee/

By the way, our parish church is being featured nationwide for 7 months as the (temporary) site of the "Heart of the Nation Catholic Mass." A Milwaukee-based ministry to the elderly, the homebound and now those sheltering at home, the "Heart of the Nation" Catholic 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 to Portland, Maine!) Locally, they broadcast Mass Sundays on Channel 24 at 7 & 9 a.m. Thanks be to God we are able to help them serve those in need, including our own homebound and sheltering in place!

For those who have a hard time using Facebook, here are some of Fr Mike Schmitz's recent amazing homilies on YouTube:
Our fellow Croatian Franciscan parish in Chicago, St. Jerome Croatian, was livestreaming on their Facebook page two great Masses until August 15th, 2020. If they resume livestreaming, a link will be re-established here.
Other highly endorsed Sunday Masses are on Relevant Radio (noon on Sunday through Saturday on 1640 AM radio) and EWTN, global Catholic television (live at 7 a.m. Sunday, and rebroadcast at 11 a.m., 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.).
These Masses for "the homebound unable to go to Mass", which includes so many of us these days.
EWTN gives the text of the Mass Readings on the internet, along with the video of the Mass:

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.)
Glen's "Story Corner" airs Monday through Friday at 6:50 a.m. on the "Morning Air" program on Milwaukee's Catholic radio station, Relevant Radio, AM 1640. Deepen your love for Jesus by tuning in to this station when you can.
