The Church of the Sacred Heart (Catholic) is a Roman Catholic church in Heron Lake, Minnesota, United States. Built in 1921 at a cost of $150,000, the church was designed by architects Parkinson & Dockendorff of La Crosse, Wisconsin. The design is Neo-Baroque with neoclassical touches. It was modeled after Central European churches and based on a basilica plan with prominent twin bell towers. It was dedicated in August 1921 in a ceremony officiated by Bishop Patrick R. Heffron of the Diocese of Winona. The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1][2][3][4]
