Celebrating the garden
This is on the front page of the Metro Section of The Sunday Augusta Chronicle. Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Augusta was closed in 1970 almost destined to be torn down but saved by a Methodist philanthropist who restored it with all its Catholic items to include altars and statuary (except pews) and renamed it Sacred Heart Cultural Center. Most Catholics in Augusta are glad that Sacred Heart is celebrating something! I predict, though, it will return to Catholic use one day; when I do not know, but mark my word...but Augusta is on the verge of a growth explosion and downtown Renaissance due to a number of issues surrounding homeland security and cyber security and a new visionary president of Augusta's prestigious Augusta University (now combined Medical College of Georgia and Augusta State University formerly combined and called Georgia Regents University, I graduated from there when it was Augusta College) poised to become a large destination campus centered downtown .
