Sacred Heart, East Toledo

The side porch of the rectory.

I was a student at Sacred Heart in the late fifties and early sixties. At that doorway there was a little hatch in the wall next to the door. I remember after Mass, we altar boys would leave the empty cruets in the hatch for the housekeeper to take care of. Thanks for the memory. I hadn't thought about that in a long time.

Sacred Heart is a beautiful church and I hope it will be there for many generations to come. My only critcisms are that the apse has been walled off to make a chapel and house the organ pipes, and the baptistry has been converted to a rest room.

It's a beautiful place, but they've done a lot of damage. All of it can be repaired when the old fashioned "spirit of Vatican II" nonsense dies out.
