February 2021 "From the Ridge"
The Bishop, Head of Deanery, and Diocese Secretariat of Communications Visit Heart Ridge and Pledge Support
Although the weather predicted rain, the sun shone brightly as we proudly showed Bishop Guglielmone, Fr. Newman, and Michael Aquilano the buildings, property, and current renovations at Heart Ridge. All were impressed with the many buildings ready to go and the potential of Heart Ridge for hosting all kinds of events for the diocese. When we told the Bishop we had a few requests, one of them being the permission for the Blessed Sacrament to be in our chapel, he said, "Make me a list, and I'll make it happen."
