    I was a member of the Sacred Heart Parish and graduated from the grammar school in 1961 and the high school in 1965. It was a wonderful church and school run by the order of St. Benedict. Miss those Friday night dances when I was in high school.

    My mom was a graduate of SH in 1945. What happened to church records?
    It would be nice to access them as she was the youngest of 11.
