Sacred Heart Church, Milwaukee  /  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!

A LOOK AT OUR PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE

Video from our livestreamed Masses

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 4 months as the (temporary) site of the "Heart of the Nation Catholic Mass." A Milwaukee 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!

Some people have great difficulty seeing the live Mass from Sacred Heart and from Chicago's St Jerome via Facebook livestreaming. There is the alternative of YouTube livestreaming and a prime example is Fr Mike Schmitz, whom tens of thousands watch each Sunday at 9 a.m. Central Time. This very faithful priest faithfully livestreams -- you would benefit seeing his live Mass if seeing ours via Facebook proves to be too difficult.

 

Our fellow Croatian Franciscan parish in Chicago is livestreaming on their Facebook page two Masses: English at 9:30 a.m. Sunday and Croatian at 11:00 a.m. Sunday. 

Click here to go to St Jerome Croatian in Chicago's Facebook home page, where their LIVE VIDEOS APPEAR. (You may need to scroll down their page to get below their photo section.)

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" are for almost all of us!

Sacred Heart Parish on Milw. 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.)

June 23rd update regarding Masses

Dear Parishioners and Friends of Sacred Heart Croatian Parish:

GOOD NEWS!

PUBLIC MASSES RESUMED FRIDAY, JUNE 26, AND, OF COURSE, PUBLIC MASSES RESUMED FOR THE 4:30 P.M. SATURDAY MASS (JUNE 27) AND THE 9:00 A.M. & 11:00 A.M. SUNDAY MASSES (JUNE 28). Thanks be to God!

Also, thank you for your prayers for our parishioner who has recovered from symptoms resembling Covid. The Covid test results arrived Monday, June 22, and the test says that IT IS NOT COVID. Again, thanks be to God!

Finally, may God reward your patience with this temporary setback of not having public Masses on Father's Day weekend. Jesus fell 3 times carrying His Cross, but got up and continued. We too are persisting in carrying our cross in this unique time, overall making much progress with God's grace.

May God protect us all!
Fr Ivan
