Celebrating St. Guanella

IMG_7824E. Providence – In honor of St. Louis Guanella’s Centennial Birth into Heaven, Sacred Heart Parish offered Mass on October 24th with  Bishop Tobin as the main celebrant. It was also a great occasion to honor Sr. Nancy McLennon, DSMP, on her 50th Jubilee of Consecrated Life.
To help the students of Sacred Heart School understand “giving bread and the Lord” in a real and practical way, Mass was offered for the Feast of St. Guanella and each student gave 50 cents, the cost of an item in the snack machine and later helped pack lunch bags that will be distributed at a local food pantry. They each participated with joy and learned that you are never to young to offer gifts to the needy.
