Cathedral of the Sacred Heart


A Catholic Parish in East Hill

Nestled among the trees of Pensacola's historic East Hill Neighborhood, the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart is home to the local Catholic Christian community. With the distinction of being the principal church of the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee, the Cathedral is the seat of the pastoral care of the local bishop. We strive to be an exemplary parish whose boundaries spread throughout the city and beyond. 

Our congregation has as its goal to encounter and be witnesses to Christ. We do this with a welcoming and innovative spirit. We provide for the Sacraments, Christian formation, and charity. By fostering meaningful relationships with Jesus and neighbor, we seek to draw others into our our family of faith.

Whether you are just visiting, looking for a new parish home, returning to the Catholic Faith, or just looking for more information...we're happy to have you here. Please consider joining us at our Sunday Masses and visit with the clergy or a representative of our church family.

Highlighted Ministries


God touches our lives through unseen and tangible ways. We celebrate the Sacraments--the signs of Jesus's presence and vehicles of his grace--as the foundation of the life of a Christian. If you are seeking to receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Reconciliation, Marriage, or the Anointing of the Sick, please contact our pastoral staff. 

CHILDREN's Liturgy of the word

Offered during the 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. Sunday Masses for children in Pre-K4 through 5th Grade, the Sunday Gospel reading is presented by our volunteer CLOW teachers in a manner more easily understood by our youngest parishioners.  Here children learn the Word of God and participate in an activity that reinforces the Gospel message. Children gather during the Mass after Opening Prayer and return to their families during the Offertory collection.

Youth Ministry

Offered for Middle and High School aged students seeking to go deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ. 


The Cathedral Music Ministry supports our parish and Diocesan liturgies by providing appropriate musical and liturgical leadership to our congregations. The sacred music at the Cathedral reflects the best sacred music of the Catholic Church -- new and old; traditional and contemporary.

children's religious education

Offered on Sundays from 9:15 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. during September through May for children Grades K – 5, the teachings of the Catholic Church are explored in an environment which promotes learning and fellowship among our parish youth. Curriculum is designed for each grade level and taught by volunteer teachers specially trained for this ministry.

We also host a summer program, Totus Tuus, that offers a VBS day program for grades 1-6 and a mini-camp evening program for pre-teens.


For children ages 3-6, CGS offers an environment where the child's personal relationship with our Shepherd is fostered and explored through interacting with tangible means. This approach allows the time and space for the Holy Spirit to work through the child, drawing them closer to our Father. CGS meets on Monday mornings from 8:30am-10:00am.


Our parish is blessed to have this formative institution serving children in grades pre-K to 8. Our school sees itself a mission of the Church, aiming for academic excellence and humble service to all. We’re happy to be one Sacred Heart family!

As sons and daughters of Our Heavenly Father, we have an obligation to reach out to our neighbors, especially those who are most in need. The members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul dedicate many hours to home visits and reaching out to our community. Our outreach coordinator manages seasonal giving to the local neighborhood.


We know that the Lord has taken the initiative, he has loved us first, and therefore we can move forward.
