Sacred Heart Chapel is a historic Roman Catholic church building in Heiligendamm, Bad Doberan town.
The church was built in 1887/88 according to plans by Gotthilf Ludwig Möckel. Since the 1990s it has no longer been in worship use. The condition of the building is in need of renovation.
Chamberlain von Suckow, who converted to Catholicism together with some Mecklenburg noblemen in the 50s of the 19th century, became the initiator of the construction of the chapel. He ensured that when the seaside resort was sold to a joint-stock company in 1873, an area in the forest was kept free. He collected the funds through private donations. After fifteen years of effort, the "Sacred Heart Chapel" at Heiligen-Damm was consecrated on August 23, 1888. On August 24, Father Gloger from Forst in der Lausitz, a bather in Heiligendamm, said the first mass.
The Catholic Church and the Lutheran Church of Heiligendamm are also called "Forest Churches". The "Association for the Promotion of the Waldkirchen Heiligendamm e.V." takes care of these churches. The founders of the association are of the opinion that the Waldkirchen are a valuable enrichment for Heiligendamm.
