Sacred Heart Church is home to over 500 families in the La Porte area. Founded in 1913 by Polish immigrants, the parish has proclaimed Christ for 100 years. Today, we seek to continue our mission of embracing Gospel values in the Catholic tradition and welcome members old and new in our journey of faith.
Please note that due to construction necessitating the turning off of power to the Church, there will be no Masses on December 9th or 10th. (Monday and Tuesday)

Prayer for the Protection of Religious Liberty
O God our Creator,
Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit,
you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world,
bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel
to every corner of society.
We ask you to bless us
in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty.
Give us the strength of mind and heart
to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened;
give us courage in making our voices heard
on behalf of the rights of your Church
and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.
Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father,
a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters
gathered in your Church
in this decisive hour in the history of our nation,
so that, with every trial withstood
and every danger overcome—
for the sake of our children, our grandchildren,
and all who come after us—
this great land will always be "one nation, under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
