“Called to be Community”
As apostolic religious, we believe that community, the witness of unity among people of diverse ages, background, cultures and racial origins, is at the heart of our mission in a fragmented and divided world.
The mission of the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary is “to know and love God, to make God known and loved, to proclaim that Jesus Christ has come that all may have life.” Since our founding in 1849, this faith vision of the founder has been implemented in different ways, according to the needs of the times in various cultures. Our Mission Statement today emphasizes our work for those “most in need of justice” and we are especially committed to the empowerment of women and children.
