Sacred Heart Church


The Sacred Heart church at Parade is the Roman Catholic church in Lübeck.

This brick basilica located not far from the Lübeck Cathedral was built from 1888 to 1891, giving Lübeck's Catholics their own church again after over 350 years.
As a result of the liturgical reform  the formerly neo-Gothic furnishings were completely replaced by a free-standing altar after 1973. Since 1955, the crypt of the church houses the memorial to the Lübeck martyrs, the three chaplains who worked at the Sacred Heart Church, Hermann Lange, Eduard Müller and Johannes Prassek, as well as the Protestant pastor Karl Friedrich Stellbrink, who were executed together in 1943. There’s an interesting exhibition documenting the work of the clergymen during National Socialism and the political developments of that time.

Due to this reference to the martyrs, the Herz Jesu Kirche was declared a Prostei Church. 

The nativity celebration on December 24 at 3:30 p.m. (admission 3 p.m.) offers churchgoers an opportunity to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ with a whole series of Christmas carols, both festive and joyful. Prior to this event, the parish team invites you to the "Open Church" from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. with harp music by Zoe Winter, the reading of the Christmas story, a small craft corner for children and a contemplative atmosphere. Visitors can be blessed at the crib. 

On Christmas Day, December 25th, we will celebrate High Mass at 11:15 a.m. with ceremonial music, the Lübeck Prostei's Choir, soloists and an instrumental ensemble will sing the Missa brevis in D major by W.A. Mozart, conducted by regional church musician Heiner Arden. On the 2nd day of Christmas, December 26th, we celebrate a Holy Mass at 11:15 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
Our Advent events, information on the Christmas concerts on 25 and 27 December and invitations to spiritual hours can be found in the Events section under the link Christmas Cooperation. 
Information on the other churches in the parish of Zu den Lübecker Märtyrern and the services there can be found at www.katholische-pfarrei-luebeck.de.
