Sacred Heart Elementary School, Salinas

The 1906 earthquake didn’t deter the Sisters from opening Sacred Heart School that same year. “On September 14, 1906, Sister Superior Flora and five Sisters came to the request of the Pastor, Reverend E. P. Griffiths, to begin Mother Julia’s work among the little ones of Salinas.” (Salinas Annals).
