Rebuilding Sacred Heart Parish

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I had the incredible opportunity to spend part of my night on Wednesday with the congregation of Sacred heart Parish. Since a fire destroyed their church 13 years ago they have been gathering in the basement of the adjacent school every Sunday to pray. Their time has come, and last night they held their last mass in that basement and they are ready to move into their new sanctuary.
