The ‘Sacred Heart Church’ situated at Bethlehem, looms over the Jordan valley, with its peculiar artistic appeal. The church was built in 1902 by the Salesians and later dedicated it to the Sacred heart of Jesus, as the Salesian spirituality looks at the heart of Jesus with meekness and humility and attends to the call of Jesus, ‘Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Mt 11: 28). The church is built in gothic style, and the structure is simple. The acoustics is really a treat to the ears as the music and voice, re-echoes.
