Stemming from connections to Christian Brothers at the LaSalle Institute in the township of…More Glencoe (now Wildwood), the Sacred Heart parish was formally founded in 1889. "Harmony, charity and love for the Eucharist" is the parish's motto.
Sacred Heart Athletic Association parishioners volunteer as coaches for the church's basketball and volleyball teams. Other activities include a gardening club and quilting group.
The parish has operated a parochial school since 1948. For children who attend public schools, this church offers a Parish School of Religion (PSR).
