Sacred Heart Parish, Grosse Ile


The first Church of the Sacred Heart was built in 1915, on the eastern shore of Grosse Ile.

A bell mount stands outside the chapel; the bell is engraved with “S. Davis”, “Detroit”, “1889”.

A cemetery stands immediately behind the chapel.

Construction on the current Sacred Heart Church began in 1968, around the corner from the chapel and cemetery.

Cardinal Dearden dedicated the church on June 14, 1969. A large vestibule was added in 1990.

A statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary stands outside the church, surrounded by Stations of the Cross.

Sacred Heart of Jesus stands in front of the church; the Holy Family hangs in the vestibule.

The parish offers Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament every Tuesday and again on First Fridays.

Sacred Heart Parish currently has 890 registered families. Fr. Mike Molnar has been pastor since July, 2008, and is assisted by Sr. Helen Therese Bodziak, Pastoral Associate.

Saturday Vigil Mass is at 5:00pm while Sunday Masses are at 8:30am and 11:00am.
