This 2010 publication of an Updated History of Sacred Heart Parish is made possible by the approval of the Sacred Heart Parish Council of a recommendation submitted to them in 2007. In preparation for the upcoming Centennial celebration the Parish Council approved the idea and requested the help of Sheila Ross, one of our parishioners. Sheila generously accepted the challenge. From that time up to June 2010, she has been actively engaged in meticulous scholarship and research. The care and diligence expended by her is beyond description. The Parish is indebted to her for this scholarly work which will be invaluable to future generations as they review the development of our Parish and Church.
