We ask that, to the best of your ability, you continue to make your weekly offertory donations even if you choose to remain 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. Online giving is also available.  Click on the blue "Donate Now" button at the top right of your computer screen or at the bottom of your mobile device display.
