Just across the street from our school is the Shrine of the Sacred Heart / Santuario del Sagrado Corazón, our mother church.
Established in 1899, our parish serves as a central meeting place in our diverse community. The church is administered by priests of the Franciscan Capuchin Order, including our current pastor, Father Moisés Villalta, OFM Cap. Father Moises is the first Salvadoran-American pastor in the history of the Archdiocese of Washington.
The Shrine of the Sacred Heart plays an important role in the daily life of our school, as the parish is strong supporters of the school, and Father Moisés is known by all of our children.
