Sacred Heart Church, Tampa

Sacred Heart Church, Tampa

Sacred Heart Catholic Church was constructed in 1905 and is one of the oldest churches in the city of Tampa. The church is predominantly a Romanesque structure, with other elements. The church is home to Sacred Heart Parish, part of the West Hillsborough Deanery of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saint Petersburg.

As Tampa grew, so did the parish, and by 1897 it was decided that a new church was needed. The dedication of Sacred Heart Church took place on January 15, 1905, and at that time the parish was renamed Sacred Heart Parish.

The granite and marble structure includes a 135 foot dome, solid oak pews and doors, porcelain tiles, and a Carrara marble altar. Its 70 stained glass windows were designed and manufactured for Sacred Heart by Franz Mayer & Co. of Munich, Germany.
