The Society of the Sacred Heart continues its mission each day:

Revealing God’s Love in the Heart of the World.

 

We do this through fidelity to relationships – associates, alumnae/I, colleagues in mission, benefactors and friends – so that the love of Christ may be more widely and deeply known.

We are deeply committed to prayer and contemplation as we serve in the Network of Sacred Heart Schools, in colleges, universities and other educational settings, in spiritual ministry centers, in justice and peace initiatives and caring for our elderly sisters.
