On Saturday evening, September 22, Deacon Ralph Bias’ twenty-first anniversary as a deacon was celebrated in the Sacred Heart parish hall. The hall was filled with Sacred Heart families including some of Deacon’s family members. The tables were decorated in black and white with black and white floral centerpieces. Music (some “golden oldies”) was provided by Andrew Lyke’s karaoke system and inspirational music from the choir. Fr. Ray Lescher provided not only the highlights of Deacon’s years as a deacon but contributions from Sophronia Bias as well. The meal provided by caterers was substantial and tasty—and true to the Sacred Heart spirit, everyone enjoyed the meal.
