Strands of Inspiration at Sacred Heart in Glendale

With some string, beads, a ruler and devotion to Mary and the church, Emily Faugno set out on a mission. Mrs. Faugno always wanted to help the church. She answered an ad that a group of sisters posted, to teach people how to make rosary beads. “I believe it is very important to pray the rosary” said Mrs. Faugno in a recent interview for the Sacred Heart Catholic Academy newspaper.

Emily has made hundreds of rosaries over the past 20 years for the students and parishioners of Sacred Heart in Glendale, New York.

Mrs. Faugno was recently presented with a card and token of appreciation by the students of SHCA. Emily Faugno will forever be an inspiration and an example of love.

Sacred Heart CA Students Meet the Real “Horse-Power” of the NYPD!

Sacred Heart of Bayside had quite the exciting experience. Sergeant Bigg, father to a current student, spent his day off by bringing his partner, Constable the horse, and another officer accompanied by his horse, to Sacred Heart. Sergeant Bigg is part of the NYPD’s Mounted Police Unit and covers areas like Central Park and Times Squre. He shared how their jobs work, gave some fun facts about the horses, and even let students feed them peppermints, carrots, and jelly beans. Msgr. Machalski and Mrs. Cooke showed the students the proper way to feed horses and helped students do so accordingly.
