Sacred Heart Catholic Church

Sacred Heart Catholic Church

In October 1876, Father Isidore Robot completed a deal with the Citizen Band Potawatomi Indians for a tribal grant of land which included the current site of Sacred Heart Mission. Pioneering the mission was difficult but on Sunday, May 13, 1877, the first Mass at Sacred Heart was celebrated. Sacred Heart was not permanently occupied until June 7, 1877, which is regarded as the true founding date of the parish. The Sacred Heart Catholic Church, completed in 1914, is located at the top of Bald Hill which represents the highest point in Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma.
