Sacred Heart Catholic Church was established in 1966 and was initially part of the San Antonio Archdiocese. Since 2000, it is within the Diocese of Laredo, itself founded on July 3, 2000 by Pope John Paul II and overseen by its first Bishop, James Anthony Tamayo. Bishop Tamayo had until that time been Auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
The Laredo diocese includes portions of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Corpus Christi and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Antonio, namely the counties of Dimmit, Jim Hogg, La Salle, Maverick, Webb, Zapata, and Zavala. On August 9, 2000, the Apostolic Letters erecting the diocese and installing Bishop Tamayo were formally read by the Apostolic Nuncio.
