Additional observations  Sacred Heart is a parish of the Archdiocese of Portland, and is the only Catholic parish in Medford.  Its parish mission, St. Joseph, is the oldest Catholic church in southern Oregon.  The first Catholic parish in Medford was founded in 1890; the current church was built in 1928.  Plans are in the works to add new buildings to the grounds, including a faith formation center and new gym.  Watch Masses, Bible studies and more under the videos tab:  It is a beautiful traditional church.
