Welcome to Holy Hearts

You found us and we're so glad that you did!  Our group began in 2005 and each year we continue to grow in numbers and energy.  Our founding families worked closely with priests in Tyler to establish a group that was in union with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, primarily to the Holy See of Peter, and to the diocesan bishop teaching in communion with him. 

Through the activities and functions of Holy Hearts, it is our desire that each of the faithful strive toward sanctification along the pathway of life that will bring us to our heavenly home in the company of the blessed Angels and Saints.

So, take some time to look around the site and become familiar with us.  We would love to get to know you too.

We are the first registered Catholic Home Schooling Group in East Texas and approved by the Catholic Diocese of Tyler, Texas

Civil War Reenactment

Brendan JMJ 10/6/15

If you are wondering if you should go to The Major Battles of the Civil War Reenactment with the Gum Springs Heritage Festival in Longview, Texas, this might help you make up your mind. They perform a couple of gun tricks, and they told us not to do what they were about to do. They also show you how they performed surgery on the battlefield. It was too hot for a full battle so they just performed a little skirmish. So this is what I saw, and learned, from the field trip.

They were talented with their guns. They put a Styrofoam cup at the end of a stick and shot at it, the cup broke into a bunch of pieces. They also made a person hold a cast-iron skillet and they shot at it (probably with fake guns), I heard the bullets hit the cast-iron skillet at twenty feet away! Lastly, a person held a small piece of metal about the size of a watch face, and they shot at it. Then they revealed the piece of metal with a hole in the middle of it! These people are really talented!

Next they showed us how they got a bullet out of a patient’s leg. They said that they stuck their finger into the hole in the patient’s leg, caused by the bullet, and felt for the bullet. YUCK! Once they found the bullet they used some sort of surgical tool, to get it out. It was really tough to get a bullet out of the patient’s leg on the battlefield.

Then we got to the skirmish part of the field trip. They showed us the positions of the armies. They teach you that boys had to fight sometimes in the Civil War. Lastly, they fired a few guns and canons (not for real) at each other. It was really loud!

The Reenactment and Heritage Festival is really quite a rip-roaring and educational place to go for a field trip. They entertain you with fake guns. They teach you about a bunch of different things. They also get you interested in a little skirmish. I am only twelve, and history is not always my strong subject, but I do know this, the reenactment and festival are the place to be on field trip-day.
