- Sacred Heart Diocesan Shrine Sacred Heart Church was founded in 1920. By 1925 it had a school and a convent. Then the men of the parish built a 1.5-story shrine dedicated to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Conception. Located on the highway, it became a welcome respite for travelers and people looking for a place to simply pray.
