Hello Everyone,
My name is Jeff, I work at City of Hope International Church, I current owners of Sacred Heart Orphanage. I was wondering if anyone had pictures of the place from when they were at SHO. I am very interested in history of this place. If someone does have pictures, maybe you might be able to scan them, and email them to me. My email is jeffreyc@me.com . If anyone would like to come by the place and look around, please feel free too. We would love to hear stories of this place.

Thank You,
Jeff Corneilson

Hi Jeff,
My name is Mauricio Cardenas, and I am 42 years old. I live in middlesex county, and my family and I run an insurance brokerage firm since 1997. I have been wanting to find a place were we can be of help to kids.
My son and I would like to come by Christmas day and bring the kids some presents, I was wondering if that would be ok with you, and your staff.
Please advise if you are ok with this.

Mauricio Cardenas

Hi Mauricio,
That would be great. I didn't know who you were planning to give the presents to, because the kids in our school wouldn't really need them. But we work with a few organizations giving presents away through our church. One organization we work with is called Angel Tree. We collect presents for kids whose parents are in jail, who are not able to be with their kids on Christmas. Then we go to the houses of the kids and hand them the presents. If you would like more information about all the things we do, you should call our church office at 201.998.9460. Our secretary Kim can get your information down, and find out what we are doing this year. If you call, just tell her that you talked to Jeff. She might not be able to give you all the information right away, she will have to contact the people in charge of that. It's always good to see people wanted to help families, especially during the holidays.
Thank You,
Jeff

I really don't know if this is the orphanage I was at.All the orphanages I have ran across so far was during the 1950's to early 1960's. What orphanages were around about 1968 that you might know? My brother and I would have been around 2 and 4 years old.I am 42years old now.Seem like I can remember the inside of the building,the sleeping room with all the bunk beds,Xmas time,sleding while riding on the man with the big red nose's back.If you know anything or can point me in a direction, THANK YOU!

Hi Tony D.My name is James Vergura and I am 70 years old. My brother and I were in Sacred Heart Orphange also from mid 1950 to mid 1952. Prior to that we were in St. Mary's Orphange in Newark for 3 years. Its not that we were orphans. We were from a family of 17 kids and our parents just couldn't take care of all of us. If you are willing, I would like to have copies of those pictures you are talking about. I too joined the Air Force and served 20 years.

Tony - I'm interested in some of the information you have about SHO. I believe my grandfather might have been there in the 20's/30's. I tried using the AOL email address you posted to contact you directly but my mail was bounced back. Do you have another email address that I can use?
Thanks,Ian
