Growing our Programs One Grant at a Time
Over the past several months, St. Bart's has been honored and blessed with three grants to support our Wellness Center and Youth Arts Programs.
This year we received full funding of $5,000 from the San Francisco Foundation FAITHS program to support The Secret Garden. The funding will help us produce another Arts Camp for youth, culminating in a performance that will raise funds and awareness for the Big Heart Wellness Center and the support we provide our food pantry clients. This year, Mother Joyce will direct the project, and the grant will also support a portion of her salary.
Alameda County's Stop Waste Program has also granted us $5,000, to create a composting program in our Big Heart Garden, with the help of our new gardening intern Jamil Burns. Look for a public meeting soon to provide our parish and neighbors with important recycling information. We will also present a composting demonstration at the Wellness Fair we’re planning to complement our Secret Garden performances.
Finally, the City of Livermore Arts Commission has granted us $1,000 to support our guest designer, Kiersten Moore, who comes with years of experience in designing for Youth Theater.

Based on the beloved children's novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden follows Mary Lennox from a cholera epidemic in India to a vast and lonely manor house in England, where she learns about friendship, feelings, healing and faith from a delightful assortment of characters.
Scheduled for three performances, Saturday August 16 at 2 pm and 7 pm and Sunday, August 17 at 2 pm, The Secret Garden will delight all ages.
Tickets are $15 general and $10 youth/seniors, with children 5 and under free. Group family discounts are available. Additional tickets will be available at the door.
Production of the Secret Garden is supported by grants from the San Francisco Foundation, the City of Livermore Arts Commission, and Alameda County Stop Waste. Proceeds benefit The Big Heart Wellness Center; a health fair featuring Center partner organizations and a garden composting demonstration will begin 30 minutes prior to both matinée performances.
