Not only did parishioners come together at their parish church for Mass celebrated by their pastor, Father John Schiele, on Sunday, July 22, they also celebrated the sacrament of baptism afterward, administered by permanent deacon Vince Ceneviva. Our Lady of the Sacred Heart marks its 100th anniversary next year. The church is located at 100 Broad Street in Hilltown, amidst the rolling fields of central Bucks County. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
