Welcome to the Sacred Heart Catholic Parish Website
Sacred Heart began in 1910 with a small frame church. Now, more than 100 years later, we are blessed and honored to have the Catholic faith alive in the Eldon, Missouri community, through the nearly 300 families that make up the Sacred Heart Parish.
Santa's Workshop, December 14
Family Survey, Respond by December 18
Pope Francis has called for a synod in 2014 to reflect on the family and the pastoral care that our Church might provide for it in its various forms today. As a preparation for this synod, the Holy Father has asked for a broad consultation on the status of family life and our Church’s response to it. You can help by taking a short survey. Click here, it will open as a PDF file that you can complete and then email to the Jefferson City Diocese. All responses to our diocesan survey must be received by December 18, 2013. In addition to contributing to the Vatican’s Synod on the Family, the time you take to complete this questionnaire will also help the local Diocese. Family life is one of the pastoral priorities of our diocese and your response will help our parishes and our people strengthen our pastoral efforts to support the “domestic church.”
