A beautiful picture of the Sacred Heart sat on an easel outside the chapel. Everyone walking by was curious as to its sudden appearance. A Mass and a prayer service for the enthronement of the Sacred Heart were scheduled for Friday, January 25. Three days prior to the ceremony a notice of this event was posted on all floors and in the main dining hall. A reminder was announced prior to the beginning of Mass, that there would be an enthronement of the Sacred Heart in our Home. Immediately following Mass, everyone met outside the chapel where Fr. Frank Fried blessed the picture of the Sacred Heart, and we all joined in a brief prayer welcoming the picture to our Home.
We were very grateful for so many joining us for this Enthronement – Residents, Employees, Association Jeanne Jugan and those who come for our daily Mass from the outside. After the blessing and prayer, the picture was placed on the wall outside the chapel which will be its permanent place of honor.
We welcome the picture of the Sacred Heart, and we ask that everyone pray to Him for his/her particular needs and intentions. May the Sacred Heart of Jesus continue to bless this Home.
