The Sacred Heart of Jesus Church

Ecofriendly

The Sacred Heart of Jesus church is located at 40 Suvorov Street. This catholic church was built in 1787.

History of creation

From the first years of its existence, Kherson was inhabited by representatives of various nations. To make the young city attractive to foreigners, H.A. Potemkin sought royal permission to build a Roman Catholic church. The church used the state  allowance assigned to it during the reign of Catherine II. There was a church school as well as a society for helping poor Catholics. The section of Suvorov street, where the building is now located, was called Catholic before the revolution in 1917.

Catholic church

The church did not escape the fate that befell many of the city's churches. On the eve of May 1st, 1957, a children's cinema named after Pavlik Morozov was opened here.

Since then, the building has been restored with the financial support of Catholics from different countries and returned to parishioners. According to the abbot, the doors of the church are open to everyone, regardless of religious affiliation.
