My Sacred Heart education was the most precious gift my parents ever gave to me, so of course we wanted the same gift for our daughters. We have made their Sacred Heart education a priority and with that comes sacrifices, which we gladly accept, for this intangible blessing in our lives."
A day I will never forget is the very first time I experienced life at Sacred Heart: the day I shadowed. I remember so many feelings of nervousness and anticipation. All of these feelings went away when I was welcomed by such sisterly love from girls I had never met before, who would later become girls I would proudly call my sisters to this day. This day was such a defining moment in my life.
