Paraphrasing the proverb "a journey of many miles begins with a single step" is a simple way of expressing that these last 12 years have seen many steps in the restoration of the parish plant of Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish and the strengthening of ministerial opportunities for our parishioners. With much prayer, thought and sacrifice we have reached the culmination of this arduous journey. The photo gallery before you is an indication of the depth of work undertaken to restore the Lombard Romanesque church that was dedicated in 1946. Various committee members and the parish's Finance Council have worked diligently to come to this point. These photos allow you to view the work in progress and perchance, before and after glimpses. The results are heartening and exciting. If all works out well we should be back in the main church for a "soft opening" by late April.
