New to Sacred Heart?
We welcome new parishioners to Sacred Heart Parish, including those who have just moved to the area, Catholics who haven't practiced their Faith for any number of years, or those that are curious and feel a tugging in their heart toward the Catholic Faith.
Sacred Heart Parish is part of the Diocese of Phoenix, but has been administered by the Claretian Missionaries of the Immaculate Heart of Mary since 1915. In addition to many gifted lay persons, we are also blessed to have two sisters of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary (IBVM), United States Province, who very generously serve our parish. Please read our Parish Mission Statement to find out more.
