 Introduction

The records of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 1883 - 2001, were transferred for microfilming to the Center for Archival Collections, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio 43403, in May 2001, with the cooperation of Reverend Frank K. Eckart of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Toledo, Ohio.

The collection consists of baptisms * , first communions, confirmations, marriages * , interments and deaths. Due to inconsistencies in pagination and transcription of data, researchers are encouraged to refer to all volumes within each series. (See order of microfilming for a detailed list of these records.)

This register and this collection was prepared by Jennifer Golis in May 2001.

* There is a seventy (70) year access restriction on baptism and marriage records. No restrictions apply to the remainder of this collection.

 Agency History

Sacred Heart Catholic Church was established in 1883. It was established by a petition from one hundred German families that resided on the east side of the Maumee River. Originally, they attended the German Catholic Church, St. Mary Catholic Church that was located on the west side of the river. Often those that lived on the east side could not attend Mass due to weather or poor bridge conditions. The bishop approved the petition and in 1883 they constructed their first church. In the same year the parish built a school and a rectory. Their first resident pastor was Reverend John Thein.

In 1900, a fire destroyed their church. The parish began building a church that same year. To avoid a large debt the parish built the church slowly, over the course of several years. The new church was damaged by fire in 1975. The parish had to remodel and redecorate their church again.
