Welcome to the Shrine of the Sacred Heart!

The Shrine of the Sacred Heart has a rich history, over 150 years, in Mt. Washington and our parishioners cut across the diverse cultures of Baltimore and the greater central Maryland region. Our pastor, Fr. William Au, and visiting priests have a keen ability to distill our local, national and global challenges and adeptly connect them to the Biblical context in the times of Jesus.  The sermons provide parishioners with practical applications to use faith as a tool in our own contemporary challenges as well as the world we face.  And our community of parishioners offers a full calendar of opportunities to engage and serve in faith.

The Shrine is a welcoming and accepting parish that embraces people from all walks of life and prides itself on spreading Jesus’s message of love. We invite you to join us in person when you are in Mount Washington!
