Your generosity over the past year in the weekly collection and the Bishop's Annual Appeal have allowed us to complete several projects on our lengthy "to do" list. The Rectory's exterior trim, windows, and back porch were repainted by professional painting contractor and Sacred Heart parishioner, Wayne Miller. Thank you , Wayne, for doing a beautiful job. The Rectory's 2nd floor HVAC system finally gave out, and was replaced back in the Spring. Our sound system is now greatly improved with the Bose equipment, allowing for clarity throughout the Sanctuary. This past week, the safety and security of the front doors was upgraded with new crash bars and lock mechanisms. The six interior doors in the vestibule received new closers. The old ones began to leak, did not control the doors, and could no longer be repaired. Again, thank you for making completion of these projects possible.
