Dear Friend of the Sacred Heart,

It's "Back-to-School" time, a time of year that fills me with a special joy … and profound gratitude. You are to thank that hundreds of children throughout the world are educated!

In Catholic grammar schools in the U.S., in open-air schools in the Congolese jungle, in Vietnam's overcrowded Ho Chi Minh City and in many other locations served by the Priests of the Sacred Heart, children are receiving a quality education made possible through your generosity.

Your generous gifts are not only helping the children, but also the seminarians at Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology. The children and these men rely on your prayerful support to help them complete their studies. I invite you to take a moment of reflection, smile and share my joy in all we are able to accomplish together.

Your devotion and courage inspire our work!

Be assured you and your intentions will be remembered in our daily Masses and prayers.

May the Sacred Heart of Jesus reward your kindness with His divine love and everlasting grace.

Gratefully in Christ,

Father Dominic
