WHO WE ARE
We Make and Grow Disciples. Our daily mission is to follow the Great Commission from Jesus Christ: "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Sacred Heart Catholic Parish was formed to meet the growing needs for a Catholic Church in the northwest side of Racine. In 1916, construction of our first Church was completed, and in August of that year our school opened in the same building. Over the years, the parish continued to grow, as did the school. A new church was built in 1925 and then again in 1968. The last addition to our facilities was the building of Haban Hall in 2010.
The parish continued to flourish through the decades, with an emphasis on the proper celebration of the sacraments, support of Catholic Education (with John Paul the II Academy being now part of the Siena Catholic Schools of Racine) and an active promotion of social projects locally and in the missions (Dominican Republic and Bolivia) in partnership with the Community of Saint Paul.
Looking into the future, Sacred Heart seeks to continue fulfilling its mission statement and be and become a “Community of the Spirit where we make and grow disciples of Jesus.”
