The children of Sacred Heart School in Palm Desert have been invited to sing at the Vatican on New Year's Eve 2024.
The children have been invited to study their Catholic faith at the foundation of the church in Italy this winter.
The students will perform at a Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican as part of the American Celebration of Music. The children will also sing in concerts at the Basilica di Santo Spirito in Florence and Church of San Polo in Venice over the 7 days.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage for these local boys and girls ages 8 to 13 years old from the Coachella Valley.
We encourage our community to share in our excitement. Please share this wonderful news with your neighbor.
The Sacred Heart School Choir is actively fundraising through this GoFundMe page as well as, by hosting an Italian Wine Pairing Dinner at Cork & Fork Restaurant on Wed. May 3rd at 6pm in La Quinta, and See's Chocolate candy sales through Easter. Please if you'd like to join us in those efforts, please reach out.
Thank you in advance for your contribution and support of these children of God.
Blessings during this Lenten Season!
