Welcome to Sacred Heart Parish!

With the many concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and based on direction from the Diocese of Springfield, we have several changes in place:


  • Until further notice, Masses will be celebrated by Fr. Michal with no congregation present. The normal Mass times have changed (see below).
  • Mass will be held daily at 8:30am, live streamed on our Facebook page, (https://www.facebook.com/SacredHeartChurchandSchool/), and posted on our 'Sacred Heart Effingham' YouTube page, (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfehux3tdVZo9c43BWMbzbQ) (7 days per week). These live streamings will be recorded and will stay available for your viewing anytime. **Please make sure to like our Facebook page and/or subscribe to our YouTube page!**
  • We are also live streaming a daily prayer at 12:10pm 7 days per week. This prayer varies daily on content but is always at 12:10pm.
  • Tune in to Facebook or YouTube for Deacon Michael's Minute each Tuesday and Friday at 5:00pm.
  • Confession is available each day from 4:00-6:00pm in the church. 
  • All parish and school events, meetings, etc, are cancelled until further notice.





We are registering for the 2020-21 school year. Please call 217-347-7177 if you would like more information about Sacred Heart School! We provide a high-quality education in a Christ-centered atmosphere, and look forward to your family joining our family!



We sincerely thank everyone who is participating in our Renew & Rejoice Campaign, which was a huge sucess in making beautiful updates to our worship space. We are humbled by the outpouring of commitment and the energy of the parishioners working together as a community of faith to raise over $3M for our campaign! We have had an amazing response from Sacred Heart Parishioners, friends of the parish, and businesses in our community. More than 155 disciples of Christ have volunteered their time and talents to make our campaign a success, while nearly 450 people have donated or pledged.

Please accept our heartfelt thanks to everyone who prayed for our campaign, everyone who volunteered, and everyone who made a donation or who may choose to contribute in the future. We trust that God will provide for each of us to fulfill our pledges in the coming years. Please know that there is still room for those who haven’t had a chance to respond. We will continue to accept donations and pledges for the restoration.
