Sacred Heart Church is a 1200 family Roman Catholic Parish located in East Grand Forks, Minnesota. East Grand Forks is located in northwest Minnesota along the border of North Dakota and the Red River of the North.
Sacred Heart Catholic Parish was started in 1893. It also has a school, Sacred Heart School, which started in 1912. Sacred Heart School is a daycare, pre-school, elementary, and high school program.
Sacred Heart School is unique because it is a combined elementary and high school program supported by a single parish. While multiple parishes today support most of the American Catholic high schools, Sacred Heart has continued to be primarily supported by the parish, families, friends, and alumni. There are twenty-two Catholic High Schools in Minnesota and four in North Dakota.
There are 7,799 Catholic Schools in the United States: of these 6,534 are elementary/middle schools, and 1,255 are secondary schools.
