Sacred Heart Catholic Church was completely restored to its former neo-Gothic glory following a devastating 2001 fire. The church is a veritable treasure trove of visual iconography. The Liturgy is celebrated with dignity. It is staffed by Franciscan friars of the Sacred Heart Province of the Order of Friars Minor in St Louis, MO.

If you like to visit old churches, this is a must see! The interior of the church did not change after Vatican ll. The tour guide does an excellent job. Make sure to call ahead to schedule a tour guide.
