Heart to Stay Open
Congratulations and best wishes to the Parishioners of Sacred Heart
The Watertown Citizens for Common Sense Government are elated at the
recent news that Sacred Heart Parish will be staying open. It only goes
to show you that when people of good will come together for the right
cause, with the right motives and use the appropriate approach, great
things can happen.
We also want to extend our warmest heartfelt words of encouragement
to a sister civic group, the East Watertown Betterment Association lead
by Ms. Angeline Kounelis.
not for Angie’s perseverance, dedication,
and love for her community, the result may have been different.
the effort by writing letters, attending meetings, making phone calls,
and keeping the issue front and center. In short she was a one-woman

even a Parishioner. Angie is proud member of the Greek Orthodox faith.
Not only did she almost single handedly save Sacred Heart Parish, but
also brought new meaning to interfaith action.
be remiss if we didn’t mention my friend
and former colleague Fr. Joe Curran. He proved to be a good steward
and an able Shepard during this trying time. Under his Pastoral leadership,
the parishioners never lost sight of what they were fighting for, why
they were fighting, and how as faithful Catholics they should and could
humbly and respectfully fight for their rights.
of all our members especially those who attend Sacred Heart Parish
we thank everyone who "pitched in" to make this joyous outcome possible.
