Sacred Heart Statue and sisters

The morning of June 11, a procession of sisters, along with associates and staff processed to the convent park area near the Sacred Heart statue. The congregation decided to revive a tradition that, on the Feast of the Sacred Heart, sisters would go out to the statue and pray. The group said the Litany of the Sacred Heart and then spent time in quiet contemplation. From there, they returned to the convent to have coffee and doughnuts on the second floor porch.
