Sacred Heart prepared me for dealing with the rest of my life by teaching me that everyone matters, and we are all special. I learned to accept everyone for who they are, no questions asked, no explanations necessary. Sacred Heart also taught me that no matter how hard you feel life gets, you can handle it. It’s not until times are tough that you learn what you can handle with faith and confidence. I believe Sacred Heart had something to do with my outlook on life, enough so that I’ve sent my children here with the hope that they continue in the same way.
