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.
