Sacred Heart School students are thankful for…..

Sacred Heart School students collected food for Thanksgiving baskets.  This year Sacred Heart School students and their families donated all the fixings for dinners to feed 74 people in and around the school community.  Over 500 items were collected for the Thanksgiving baskets.


Parking Lot Taking Shape

Site work, landscape modifications and drainage improvements are underway in Sacred Heart’s latest parking lot improvement project.  When complete, later this fall, the parking lot improvements will not only provide better access to and egress from the overflow lot located on the Spring Avenue side of Sacred Heart Church, but will also provide several new planting beds and landscaped areas to further enhance the church grounds.


Preparing the Feast!

Parishioners Paula Daily, Devon Camenga & Kathy Dresch join Fr. Yanas in assisting  Gina Petrelli (Father’s former housekeeper and cook in Frankfort NY.) in the preparation of a gourmet Italian feast.

Devon and his family were the successful bidders on a day long cooking lesson with Gina and a gourmet Italian Feast with Fr. Yanas at the Sacred Heart Annual Silent Auction.  This year’s auction, held in May raised over $25,000 to benefit Sacred Heart School.  Buon Appetito!
