Last evening was the first day of celebrations for the 100th Anniversary of Sacred Heart Church. Four hundred people gathered for tours of the church and the opening of Saint Andre House. We shared a meal from two food carts that ran out of food. The weather provided clouds to shade us from the strong sun. We welcomed Fr. Jarrod Waugh, CSC as the new pastor and welcomed Bishop Bill Wack, CSC who will preside this evening at Mass.
Today is the actual day of our anniversary. On July 16, 1922, the church building was dedicated. I am so grateful to have been part of the history of this parish community.

Pray for us all in these days of transition, change and celebration!
Sacred Heart of Jesus, console us.
