About Sacred Heart

Sacred Heart Church began in 1874. By 1945, when the Navy came to Lee Field, the Mass schedule increased from 3 to 5 Masses which ended up being held at the Clay Theatre in Green Cove Springs because the church started to fall apart.

May 1946 ground broke for the greatly needed new church; on land adjacent to the old church. Navy Personnel volunteered their labor toward the building of the new church; and the old church was being used as a parish hall and classroom where Sunday school classes and children's choir were being held.

In 1994, Fr. Donal Sullivan, a native of Ireland, was appointed pastor of Sacred Heart. In 1999, work began to build another new sanctuary to accommodate the growing Catholic population.

The new Sacred Heart located at 7190 State Highway 17 in Fleming Island was built and on May 13, 2001 the dedication was presided over by Bishop John J. Snyder.



We celebrate the following categories of ministry here at Sacred Heart: 

  • Liturgical
  • Pastoral
  • Social Services
  • Stewardship
  • Spanish

Compelled by the Gospel we the parish family of Sacred Heart, promote and support Christian Life by serving our parish and community through the celebration of the sacraments, educational programs, and other parish ministries. 


"Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.'"  - John 6:35

The celebration of Mass is an act of the whole assembly gathered for worship. In the Mass, the Church is joined to the action of Christ.  We are joined to this divine action through Baptism, which incorporates us into the risen Christ.

You will find Mass schedules for ordinary time and holidays and Mass Readings for the particular day from United States Conference of Catholic Bishops website. 


Stewardship is a way of life. For Christians who follow in the way of the Lord Jesus, stewardship is an expression of discipleship. When we recognize that God is the origin of all life, the giver of everything that we have and are, and the source of our freedom and giftedness; the healthy person responds by thanking God through prayer, by serving God and God's people through ministry, and by sharing our financial resources with those in need.

Stewardship is a way of life based upon conversion of heart.
