Parish Financial Support:  As we still are enduring the COVID-19 pandemic, Sacred Heart and St. Nicholas need your support. Although we are celebrating Mass as a parish community in a limited capacity, we continue to maintain the church building, and, importantly, continue our outreach ministries. We ask that, to the best of your ability, you continue to make your weekly offertory donations even if you choose to stay home, by mailing them to Sacred Heart Church, 700 Maple Vista, Imlay City, MI 48444. Please mail checks only. Checks can be made out to Sacred Heart Church or St. Nicholas Church. We will ensure that the checks are deposited into the proper account. Thank you for your continued support during the pandemic crisis.

The Archdiocese of Detroit has also enabled online offertory contributions.  Please visit

If you would like to help but cannot attend, donations can be sent to Fr. Noel Cornelio at the Imlay City parish office:  700 Maple Vista, Imlay City, 48444

Thank you and God bless you!
