Sacred Heart School
Tel: (573) 543-2997
Sacred Heart Parish, Rich Fountain was founded in 1838 by Father Ferdinand Helias d'Huddeghem, S.J.
The earliest parishioners from Bavaria, Germany, were staunch Catholics, cherishing a faith that has been a "rich fountain " of encouragement and inspiration unto the present generation.
St. Ann's Socality and the Quilting Ladies are active organizations. Annual events that bring many back home to Rich Fountain are the Corpus Christi processions, the annual picnic, and quilt auction in summer.
The parish currently numbers more than 262 families, many with the same surnames as the first four families. Sacred Heart has given 40 vocations to the Church.
