Last week was very busy with two Sacramental celebrations, two track and field meets and our walkathon. All of these events were amazing displays of our community. I thank staff members who worked with the children and gave up their evenings and weekends and also thank the families for your support. Lastly, I thank the children for your passion and enthusiasm - it is what gives us adults who work at Sacred Heart energy and the excitement to come to work every day.
