Our Mission

The mission of Sacred Heart Parish is to be the spiritual focal point for the Catholic Christian community in our portion of the Diocese of Des Moines. This community:Sacred Heart Church | Easter

  • Believes and proclaims that Jesus Christ is Lord;
  • Calls its people to experience and put into practice the love of Jesus Christ;
  • Draws its people into the social and spiritual life of the parish so that each has a sense of belonging;
  • Seeks to help its members take on the "mind of Christ" through prayer, study and worship;
  • Uses and returns the gifts and talents God has given;
  • Is itself a sign calling its members to hear and respond in ministry to the spiritual and temporal needs of people within the parish and beyond.

O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. For He is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
     ~ Psalm 95:6,7
