The Annual Catholic Schools Liturgy will be held at the Albany Cathedral of Immaculate Conception which serves to recognize the great work that our Catholic schools do on a daily basis.

Each $25.00 family meal will include chicken Parmesan, pasta, salad, bread and dessert. There is a limit of 100 family meals available so we strongly suggest that you purchase yours today!

Service Project: This is the second year that the children will be participating in their “Gifts of Warmth from Our Hearts” service project under the direction of our art teacher, Mrs. Thomas. Participating students will meet after school to learn how to knit, crochet or sew hats, mittens, gloves and scarves for the needy of Troy. Parents have been asked to donate the materials needed by this group and were even encouraged to donate items that they themselves had made for the cause. These items of “warmth” will be placed in a zip lock bag and labeled “I AM NOT LOST” and then hung in Barker Park in downtown Troy on Saturday, February 4. Supplies will be replenished until the end of February.
March Madness Raffle: Our annual March Madness Raffle is underway and additional forms may be found in the hallway and on our website www.SacredHeartSchoolTroy.com. Every $10 ticket gives your 31 chances to win $100 with the grand prize of $1,000 being picked on St. Patrick’s Day. Like the NYS Lottery says, “You have to be in it to win it”!
