Spectacular church news in the little City of Lake Worth

Kevin Thompson, the Post beat reporter, has this good news about one of our treasured churches here in the City:
     Sacred Heart Church on [425] North M Street spent the summer undergoing $250,000 worth of renovations [emphasis added], which included adding a new roof, updating the AC along with the marble and porcelain tile. The pews were also taken apart, shipped to North Carolina and restored to its original oak finish.
      “It was time to give the church a fresh look,” said Milka Santos, an advancement director at Scared Heart School.
      All the money was donated, Santos said.
      While Sacred Heart was closed, services were held in Madonna Hall.
      Now, Sacred Heart is ready for its coming out party, of sorts, as the renovations are complete. The Most Reverend Bishop Gerald Barbarito will rededicate the church [NOTE: dedication ceremony was held on Sunday morning, 9/27]
Here is the Mission Statement for the Sacred Heart Catholic Church:
We, the Roman Catholic family of Sacred Heart Church in Lake Worth, empowered by the Word and the Sacraments, are a welcoming, Christ-centered, culturally diverse community. Together, we answer our Christian calling to worship God, grow in holiness and share our faith in Christ by loving and serving our brothers and sisters.
I'm looking forward to stopping by and seeing all the work that was done. I've attended services there several times and it's very interesting to watch the mass done in three languages.
