SACRED HEART SCHOOL: 1948-1977

In September of 1948, Sr. Anita Fromn and Theophila Gemsa opened this little school in the West end of Huntington. The building was not completed by the time school started, and Msgr. Newcomb offered two classrooms of St. Joseph Grade School to Sacred Heart students. It began with grades one through six, and grades seven and eight were added later. By Christmas the new school was ready, with four classrooms and a cafeteria.

The people were relatively poor in this parish, and for some years the sisters taught without salaries. In later years enrollment lagged, and for various reasons, the Pallottines gave up the school in 1977.

In 1985, the Pallottines returned to Sacred Heart Parish. Sr. Mary Terence Wall became Pastorial Associate at this time. This involvement continues until the present, and Sr. Terence still lovingly serves the people of this parish.

"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"As a community of disciples we are gathered around Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father. Like the first disciples, we want to be with Jesus, be sent out by him and return to him to evaluate our service in the light of his presence." (OWL, 88)

"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
