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

The Knight's Tale

Has your mom ever made you do something you really didn’t want to do?  My mom made me go to a play called, “The Knight’s Tale” and I didn’t want to do it, but I’m glad she did because my friend Brendan was there and it ended up being pretty good.

 

The curtain opened to a happy kingdom scene when almost immediately dragon warriors and a dragon swooped in to steal the villager’s Lantern of Purest Light and kill the King and Queen. The sword fighting was very realistic because they actually hit each other and used real steel swords. As the play progressed, we learned that the Prince of that kingdom had escaped to a neighboring kingdom that was equally happy. All was fine until that King decided to order one last quest of his bravest knight to find the Lantern of Purest Light. Sir Everheart was accompanied by Squire Gareth who had been raised by the wisdom of the Scroll.  On their adventure, Gareth saved the troops many times by using guidance of Scripture from the Scroll. In the end, Squire Gareth defeated the dragon. This was my favorite part because the dragon was so cool.  She was huge, taking up almost all of the stage and mechanical with wings that moved and smoke came out of her nostrils. All the King’s men were released from the evil spell and returned to their kingdom which was under attack from other dragon warriors.  Here was another fantastic sword fight. After they won the battle, the grossest part was when Squire Gareth became knighted and married Princess Alexandria and the Prince from the first kingdom discovered his heritage and married Princess Catherine.  My mom really loved all the parts with the princesses because they talked a lot about purity and saving their first kiss.

 

Overall, the acting was perfect, the sword fighting was amazing, the singing was inspirational, and a lot of the parts were funny.  I also thought it was neat that I knew two of the actors, Ethan Rite and Mrs. Crawford.  It was pretty cool that one of the actors let me hold a sword that was used in the play.  Now that I’ve seen this play, I’m more open to seeing other plays as long as there is no kissing or wedding scenes.
