We welcome you to Sacred Heart - St. Joseph Catholic Parish.

We are a Christ centered community of faith which gathers to worship around the real presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist and the sacramental life of the Church. Through the love of Christ's Sacred Heart and the intercession of St. Joseph, we hope to journey from this life into the everlasting life to come. Come and journey with us!
Fr. Tim Haberkorn

Please join Father Tim in this virtual Mass for the Fifth Sunday of Lent, 3.29.20
You can follow along with these Readings.  
During Communion, please make a Spiritual Communion with our Lord using this prayer...
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Due to the current situation of no public masses offered in our parish, it is very critical and necessary that all parishioners please continue to make your weekly contributions for the support of our parish. Please visit Faith.Direct/KS196 for electronic offertory or mail your weekly envelopes to the parish.

Fr. Tim continues to celebrate an individual, daily Mass and will include these intentions. Please include them in your prayers as well.

Germanfest 2020
Event Canceled

The difficult decision has been made to cancel
Germanfest & Brat Trot 2020.
The main reason for the cancellation of Germanfest is that I, personally as Pastor, and the Parish of Sacred Heart-St. Joseph, do not want to potentially risk passing Coronavirus to visitors, parishioners, workers, or organizers. This is a serious risk where we will not take chances. With the gathering of large crowds, the risk is higher. The decision to cancel is primarily based on the care and concern for the health safety of all involved. We, as a parish community, continue to offer our prayers for the well-being of all. We rely on the strength of our faith to see all of us through these challenging and life-altering times. Thanks for your understanding and compassion. Fr. Tim Haberkorn

Please mark your calendar for next year:
Germanfest 2021 - June 5 & 6, 2021

9th Annual Brat Trot - June 5, 2021

Golf Tournament - June 12, 2021
