Sacred Heart Church (Jersey City)

Sacred Heart Church is a historic church and former Roman Catholic parish church at 183 Bayview Avenue in the Greenville section of Jersey City, New Jersey, United States. It is within the Archdiocese of Newark.


Built between 1922 and 1924, it was designed by Boston architect Ralph Adams Cram with a mixture of Spanish Gothic and Moorish architecture. Its stained glass windows were designed by the then 18-year-old Harry Wright Goodhue.

Sacred Heart Church closed in 2005 when the number of parishioners dropped to a few hundred from the 4,000 it had at its peak. The Archdiocese of Newark has no plans to reopen the church. The affiliated Sacred Heart School remains open. The complex is listed on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places but is considered threatened.

The priory of the church become home of the Jersey City Employment & Training Program (JCETP) re-entry program, headed by Jim McGreevey, in 2015.
