The Sacred Heart Altar

The Sacred Heart Altar honors Christ as He appeared to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque in the 16th century.

On either side of Jesus are Saints Alphonsus Liguori and Theresa of Avila, both founders of religious orders. Saint Alphonsus founded the Order of Redemptorists which is the Order of priests that have been at Saint Michael in Old Town for over 150 years. They continue now to serve the current parish. Saint Theresa of Avila founded the Discalced Carmelite Religious Order of Nuns.

Many young people pray at this altar if they consider the pursuit of Holy Orders.
