Mission Cross in Amatongas

New sign out by the road in front of our school
Well, it's not the big iron mission cross of our founder Fr. Andre Coindre, but we are proud of our small carved wooden cross now hanging in just about every room of the school building. The cross's were hand carved by a local artist who tried to match the original sent from the province of New Orleans. After the war our school was taken over and operated by the government with no real religious symbols present. It has been a slow process changing the culture of the school and making it a Brothers of the Sacred Heart school. This is just one small, but important, step.
Ametur Cor Jesu!

All classrooms now have a cross

The school office as well
