Sacred Heart Church is a historic Roman Catholic church at 516 Safford Street in Tombstone, Arizona, United States. It was built in 1881, purportedly with support by Nellie Cashman, an Irish immigrant who had been in the United States since age five. The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002. The church is part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Tucson.

Cashman was a noted miner and local businesswoman owning a hotel /restaurant, who also worked as a nurse. She was said to have provided spiritual support to the convicted killers of the Bisbee Massacre, and to have prevented a public spectacle of their execution in Tombstone.
