OUTSTANDING BEAUTIFICATION DAY

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Thank you Sacred Heart!!!   Thank you dedicated Beautification team!!!  Close to 200 Sacred Heart parishioners spread out over the campus to trim, weed, clean and mulch. The church grounds look terrific!!!   Mission accomplished!!! Father Victor has a big smile on his face.

 

The goal was to make the campus look good. In the process, a whole lot of Sacred Heart people made themselves look good. They are the heroes.

Perhaps the majority of the group was students. From Cub Scouts to high school, they are essential to Beautification. The 8th graders win the prize by having the most people of any single group. Sacred Heart parents and all adults, you can be proud of your students of all ages.

 

If the students took a vote, the “Most Valuable Player” would be the cooks who brought in the food. Lumpia, pansit, fried rice, salads, cole slaw, baked beans, sandwiches of all kinds, including BLT’s, meat balls, fried and rotisserie chicken, yummy curry chicken,  deep flavored pot roast with veggies, and pizza were all on the table. Plus, one man worked most of the night to apply the rub and slowly grill the best chicken wings you ever wrapped your lips around. Dessert! Deserts! Deserts!

 

When the 2 Bishops and about 30 priests arrived Sunday for Father Victor’s 50th Anniversary of his ordination as a priest, all could see that our Sacred Heart Parish sparkled like the gem that it truly is.
