Living Our Mission

We participate in the mission of the Church through the service of education.
Caught up as we are in the desires of His Heart, we want people to grow in dignity, as human beings and as children of God. Our starting point is the Gospel with all that it demands from us of love, forgiveness and justice, and of solidarity with those who are poor and rejected by the world.

Wherever we are sent, whatever our work may be, our lives will be inspired by the love of the Heart of Jesus and the desire of making Him known, expressed in: a concern for the growth of the whole person, a thirst for working towards justice and peace in the world in response to the cry of the poor, a passion to proclaim the Gospel.

Who We Are

The Society of the Sacred Heart was founded in France by St. Madeleine Sophie Barat in 1800. Today over two thousand Religious of the Sacred Heart (RSCJ) serve in 41 different countries around the world.

We are sent by the Church to communicate the love of the Heart of Jesus. In Him all find their true growth as persons and the way towards reconciliation with one another
