As Religious of the Sacred Heart in the United States-Canada Province, we are called by our recent Chapter Documents to stand in solidarity with “those who have been wounded, displaced, and excluded because of poverty, violence, and environmental degradation.” The recent decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Accord and to stop future payments to the Green Climate Fund compels us to add our voice to the growing chorus of people of good will from around the world who are deeply concerned about the negative impact this will have both locally and globally.
On Friday, June 23, 2017, we celebrate the Feast of the Sacred Heart! This is an important Feast in the Society of the Sacred Heart - a time when we come together to renew and deepen our common spirituality. Join us, as we prepare for the Feast, with a special message from our Central Team in Rome. In her Letter for the Feast of the Sacred Heart, Sister Barbara Dawson invites us to respond to Jesus' call: "Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,for I am gentle and humble of heart."
