Welcome to the website of Sacred Heart Church in Coshocton, OH. We are a community of Catholic Christians located in Coshocton County, Ohio off Route 16/36 and Route 541 near Roscoe Village in the Diocese of Columbus, OH. We are firmly grounded in Scripture and the Sacraments which we celebrate in our regular and devout celebrations of prayer, traditional devotions and most especially the Mass. Our patron is the Sacred Heart of Jesus as revealed to St. Gertrude and St. Margaret Mary Alacoque and we live the active life of the Body of Christ.

Those who are “high risk” are especially those highly susceptible to COVID or those who manifest symptoms of COVID. Those “susceptible to COVID,” include those over the age of 70 or those who have serious health conditions. Symptoms include a cough of any kind or a fever. Those who are “high risk” are especially cautioned to avoid public gatherings, including Mass until it is safe for them to attend. Though we wish that all could gather with us for the Eucharist, we cannot guarantee complete safety at this time.

Bishop Brennan dispenses the Catholic faithful who reside in the Diocese of Columbus and all other Catholics currently in its territories from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass until September 13, 2020.
