History

p115-1

The first Mass in what is now the Sacred Heart Parish in Webb City was celebrated around the turn of the century. From 1900 to 1908 priests came from Carthage and Joplin to this town, which was nothing more than a lead mining camp, to offer Mass in an upstairs room over a grocery store and in Catholic homes.

In 1908, a frame church had been purchased from the Presbyterian congregation. Sacred Heart parishioners built a new altar. In November 1908 Fr. Francis Tief, a priest from New York, was appointed the first pastor.

The Catholic community grew and eventually needed more worship space. The Methodist church at Second and Oronogo Streets was purchased in 1940. The sanctuary was modernized in 1959 and again in 1969 in keeping with liturgical changes of Vatican II. Finally, in 1982, a church built by the parish was dedicated.

The Presbyterians, Methodists, and lead mining all indirectly contributed to the early beginnings of what is now a “welcoming” parish, focusing on Spanish-speaking Catholics in the Webb City area.
