We hope you enjoy these "Stories from the heart" from our 2018-2019 Annual Report as they highlight the experiences of those throughout our Sacred Heart community.

And I ventured out into the rising new day,
laying witness with a look and with wonder:
I am for and of this and all of these
and this and these are of me—
The shaft of light and the birdsong,
my neighbour, the elder, the child,
the hills, the waters, the deserts,
the places and the people who ache, who suffer...
My heart is of this whole;
My mind and spirit are drawn
into the tumble of laments and graces—
mine and yours and those of creation.
And in that teeming whirlwind we
are called to let go, called to bloom;
Called to awe and called to question;
Called to action, called to stillness,
to the fullness of our humanity
and to the divine recognition
that all is held in Love,
that all is called by Love.
