    In a newsletter mailed to parishioners Sacred Heart Pastor Peter Petroske announced upcoming changes that would significantly alter both the churchs schedule and structure.Regretfully Reverend Petroske gave notice that the historic church convent would be razed. He noted significant water damage to the building as well as faulty windows and a pressing need for a new boiler that would cost up to 60 000.Although the landmark building has become a liability for the church the Reverend recognized what a painful decision this would be for many Sacred Heart parishioners. When the building is eventually removed the site is being considered for additional parking or an expanded play area for Sacred Heart students.The church also announced changes to their Mass schedule.
