(Spiritual) Home for Christmas

It's Christmas, and we couldn't resist posting this heartwarming story about Sacred Heart Parish in King City.

A Toronto Star clipping from the parish files tells the story of what happened on February 6, 1960:

According to the parish history, the local parishioners banded together and through their generosity, a new church, as shown below, was built within a year. The first mass was held on Christmas Eve, 1960.

Even if you're not at home for the holidays, you can find a spiritual home at a church in any town, big or small, with a family ready to celebrate the birth of our Saviour with you.
