Church Renovation: Sacred Heart Church was built in 1920-1921 and is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. This beautiful church has provided the spiritual needs of Sacred Heart Parish for many years. As the church has been there for our needs, it is time we take care of its. We are in the process of renovating the church in preparation of its 100th year anniversary.

Please visit the SH Foundation page for information and updates. If you would like to make a contribution, please contact the office at office@sacredheartheronlake.org or call 507-793-2357.


Lenten regulations for Fasting and Abstinence: On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, Roman Catholics age 18 to 59 observe fasting (eating one full meal, and two smaller meals as needed, and not eating solid food between meals) and on all Fridays of Lent, Roman Catholics age 14 and older abstain from eating meat.


Rice Bowl: We are motivated by the example of Jesus Christ to assist poor and suffering people in 93 countries on the basis of need, without regard to race, religion or nationality. Through CRS Rice Bowl, we hear stories from our brothers and sisters in need worldwide, and devote our Lenten prayers, fasting and gifts to change the lives of the poor.
