On Sept. 3, 2021, Sisters and Associates were invited to a tour of the former historic Sacred Heart church which was arranged by Dianne MacAskill. The church is over 130 years old and was vacant for 10 years . It has been renovated into a multi-functional venue for celebration and entertainment for the residents of Sydney. Kevin and Cheryl Colford had a vision for the old church. It has been redecorated preserving the 19th century old architecture retaining much of the stain glass windows, pillars and the sacredness of the church. The church is now called Sacred Heart Downtown and it is a tribute to the rich history of the former parish in Sydney.
