SOLD -Sacred Heart Church

"Sacred Heart Catholic Church" 12x16" oil on gessobord
         "Home is where the heart is."—Pliny the Elder

I thought I'd share a painting I am donating to Sacred Heart Church's "Annual Spring Festival" fundraising event next Sunday here in Conroe. 

I've been an active member of the parish since 1984. Over these years we were blessed by five pastors, and have seen families come and go as Sacred Heart has continued to grow by leaps and bounds. While it's wonderful we've totally overgrown this campusserving near 5,000 families—and have broken ground for a larger church on the grounds, there is still something a little sad about trading in this cherished sanctuary for a newer model.  

My husband and I were married at Sacred Heart, we've had children baptized, attend school, take instructions and received the sacraments here, my mother sang in the choir for many, many years, and my father's Celebration of Life was shared inside its doors. Sacred Heart has been a big part of my family

I painted this to commemorate all the years of service to our community and to the thousands of lives that have been touched and impacted at its welcoming wide-open doors inviting all to worship

Thanks for letting me share.
