churchOur Parish is part of the Archdiocese of Melbourne, located in Sandringham, a Bayside suburb of Melbourne.

We warmly welcome newcomers and visitors to our Parish.  The church has wheelchair access.

We are twinned with the Parish of Remexio in East Timor and we provide regular financial support to the people of that district.

The history of Sacred Heart extends back more than 100 years to the pioneering days of the original Gypsy Village. The first church building was blessed in 1906 and was initially a part of St James Parish Elsternwick. In 1914 Sacred Heart became a Parish in its own right. The present church was opened in 1974 and underwent a major renovation in 2010, which included the installation of its beautiful new glass doors and windows. There is more information on the history of the Parish and its art and architecture via the website menu on the right side of this screen.
