Welcome to our Parish!

We, the Roman Catholic community of Sacred Heart Croatian parish, are a family of diverse people united through faith in Jesus Christ. We accept our baptismal call: to proclaim and witness the good news of the gospel; to live and work together as brothers and sisters; to celebrate God’s goodness in the sacraments and sacred scriptures; to serve all with justice, peace, and love in the name of the Lord. Embracing all, as a faith community, we promise to grow together to bring about the promise of God’s kingdom on earth.

YOU CAN NOW TEXT TO DONATE

Financially we have been hit hard due to this COVID-19 pandemic since we depend upon your weekly donation and there are no public weekly masses. We ask that you please continue to support Sacred Heart in any way that you can. It might be more convenient to do it electronically. You can set it up to make automatic withdrawals and it will make your contribution to our parish on a regular basis or you can make a one time contribution. This allows your continued support to the parish during the unforeseen circumstances such as the one we have now. You can still donate via computer or tablet as well.

EASTER BASKET BLESSING AT HOME

Many of our parishioners have been asking about the wonderful tradition of blessing Easter baskets. Unfortunately, due to the stay at home order, we are unable to bless the Easter baskets in the church as our usual tradition. We encourage everyone to continue this tradition at home. Here is a prayer that can be used to bless our Easter baskets in our homes. This document can be downloaded and printed for easier use by our parish families.

CONTACT UPDATE FORM

Dear parishioners,
We are trying to update our parish records so that we have email addresses for everyone. During this time things change very rapidly and it is very difficult to get word out everyone in an efficient manner. Please fill out our google form and ask other parishioners to make sure we have everyone's current contact information. This will help us get information out to everyone more quickly. Please copy and forward this link via messenger, email, text, or whatever way you can to any parishioners you know.

WE NOW HAVE A YOUTUBE CHANNEL

Sacred Heart now has a YouTube channel. During this time when we cannot have public Mass, we will do our best to bring you Mass and other content through our YouTube channel and Facebook. Below are the links to both of these. 

You do not need a Facebook account to view Sacred Heart's Facebook posts, videos, or live streams. It is a public page and all content is available to everyone. You can get to this page by clicking the "Find us on Facebook" link in the left column near the bottom of the list. If you do not have an account, Facebook will occasionally ask you to create one. It is not necessary to create an account. Just click "not now" and you will be able to continue to view our page leaving the banner at the bottom of the screen. This applies to mobile users as well. Thanks for helping us spread the word.

CARDINAL’S CALL TO COMMON PRAYER AND RINGING OF CHURCH BELLS

You may notice the church bells ringing at unusual times beginning Saturday, March 21. Cardinal Cupich has asked that all the parishes in the diocese ring the church bells at 9 AM, and every three hours thereafter until 9 PM to remind us as a church community to pray for all those affected by this current outbreak of illness. Take this opportunity to be united in prayer, especially at a time when we are isolated. By pausing and lifting up in prayer all those affected by the pandemic, we can offer those in need our support and let them know that they are not alone. Click the link below to download the prayers for each of the times that the church bells will ring. If you live a distance from the church that does not allow you to hear the bells, try setting your alarm on your phone, watch, alarm clock, or any device to remind you to pause in prayer. May God bless you and keep you in his care.

TAX CREDIT & MATCHING GIFT PROGRAM

The State of Illinois created a tax credit scholarship program through the “Invest in Kids” Act that is mutually beneficial to students and donors. It provides a 75 percent Illinois State income tax credit to individuals who contribute money to fund scholarships for students to attend private schools. Eligible students from low-income families in Illinois may use these scholarships to attend a non-public school of their choice, including Sacred Heart School. For every dollar donated to this program through Empower Illinois between Dec. 1, 2019 and Feb. 29, 2020 and designated to a school operated by the Archdiocese of Chicago will be matched with two dollars from a matching pool....Click here for more information
