Lourdes Chapel

Long after they have left our campus on King Street, students talk of the lasting impact this international service trip had on their experience at Sacred Heart Greenwich. Recently, students who visited Lourdes this past summer had the opportunity to share their own memorable experiences with the rest of the Upper School in a special Lourdes Chapel.
