     Sacred Heart Cemetery (Florissant MO) is located at 980 Graham Road in Florissant, St. Louis County, Missouri, 38.78030, -90.33360.
Around 1846 Germans began moving into Florissant Valley. In 1866, thirty-five German Catholic families in the St. Ferdinand Parish received permission from Archbishop Peter Kenrick to build a second parish church and a parochial school where the German language would be used.

The first pastor, Father Ignatius Panken, established a German parochial school first, and the church was completed in 1867. The church was named in honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Sisters of the Precious Blood taught the students.

The early Germans buried their dead in the old St. Ferdinand Cemetery. When the St. Ferdinand Parish Council requested a new cemetery in 1874, the Germans of Sacred Heart asked for a separate plot of land for their own cemetery. The site on Graham Road, a short distance from the New St. Ferdinand Cemetery, was selected and called the "German Catholic Cemetery" for many years. Today it is known as Sacred Heart Cemetery.

Originally, only a small portion of the property was developed as a cemetery. A road led from Graham Road to the large stone crucifix. Later developers sold part of the undeveloped land for a subdivision.

Archbishop Joseph Ritter took over the management of the two Florissant cemeteries in the 1960s, and the Catholic Cemeteries redeveloped them. At Sacred Heart Cemetery the large granite crucifix was moved closer to Graham Road and the old entrance was closed. An epic size statue of the Sacred Heart was erected in Section 3 on a column of Missouri red granite, forming a second shrine within the cemetery. Later a chapel for committal services was constructed, along with an outdoor garden mausoleum, niches for the inurnment of cremated remains, lawn crypts, floral lawn crypts and shared family monument lots.

The following people are buried here.

St. Joseph Chapel Church (OFallon MO)

?, #34165
Sisters of the Most Precious Blood, St. Mary's Academy and College
O'Fallon, Missouri
     St. Joseph Chapel Church (OFallon MO) is located at 204 Nortn Main Street in O'Fallon, St. Charles County, Missouri. St. Joseph Chapel Church (OFallon MO) practiced the Catholic religiion.
The Sisters of the Most Precious Blood settled in St. Louis and by 1873 they had established schools in eight different cities, one of which was O'Fallon. Two of the nuns, Sr. Camilla and Sr. Blanche, taught in O'Fallon and resided in a little log house, along with others who supervised the building of their permanent home. By June of 1875, the first convent building in O'Fallon was completed. Between 1885 and 1920, many additions and expansions were made to the facility. In 1925 a new chapel was begun, a building of extraordinary Gothic grandeur. Later, a Novitiate (residences and classrooms for the training of new sisters) was added. In 1878, a Normal School for Teachers was opened, and this was the future St. Mary's College of O'Fallon, which continued to educate area residents until 1988. St. Mary's College was well known for its exceptional nursing school. In 1964, St. Mary's Academy began as a small private Catholic high school for girls and it continued there until 1990.
After 120 years in O'Fallon, the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood had built and beautifully maintained their campus. They had provided many jobs for their O'Fallon neighbors. They had been a partner with the city and its residents on spiritual, educational, and economic levels throughout the years. When some of the convent, college and academy buildings were no longer needed, the Sisters looked for a way to downsize and to preserve the character and beauty of the campus. By this time, the O'Fallon City Hall, at the corner of Main and East Elm Streets, was too small to accommodate the city's growing staff and citizen's needs. The City of O'Fallon bought the underused buildings on the southernmost edge of the convent properties and, after extensive renovations, those buildings became the new O'Fallon City Hall in 1999. Today, the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood Convent and City Hall, together in the heart of the original downtown area, are a perfect blend of cooperation and tradition.
