Province Statement on Immigration - October 2017
The Society of the Sacred Heart in the United States and Canada began – as did so many American institutions – with an immigrant. St. Rose Philippine Duchesne left her home in France in 1818 with a desire to educate the poor, especially the indigenous people of America. The schools she founded served a diverse population which included immigrants, as well as Native American and African American children. In 2008, the international Society of the Sacred Heart reaffirmed its commitment to the economically poor and disenfranchised:


The image of Christ crucified amid a bleak urban landscape reminds us that wherever there is any human suffering, God is also suffering. The smoke stacks poisoning the environment, the tall towers that depersonalize a sense of neighborhood, and the lack of any human presence save that of Jesus Himself are underscored by the color palate of deep russet, black, and gray. One is reminded of William Blake’s “Jerusalem” – one interpretation of which suggests that the mills and factories of the Industrial Revolution dehumanized society and enslaved millions.

For Your Prayers

miracles for restore relationship

Please intervene God. I feel very lost and unhappy. Please help me, I'm hurt inside. I am so tired to cover everything by pretending and no matter how hard I pray nothing seems to be working. Please pray for Damianus and me. I have been waiting for reconciliation and peace for me and him, everyone tells me to forget and leave it, they keep pressing me. I cried, it's not so easily as they say and imagine. I feel so traumatized, I have been struggling with depressed and suffering for the past 3 years.

Marriage restoration

My husband has filed for divorce. Please God save my marriage and change his heart, mind, and soul. Give me peace and faith to know you will save my marriage.

We should have but one desire, to love Jesus and to do his will.

St. Madeleine Sophie Barat


Everyone loves Sister Angela Bayo. But don’t ask her about it. She’s far too modest. She’ll say she’s nothing without the rest of the teachers, that she’s just part of a team, and she’ll subtly steer the conversation toward the merits of some other educator instead.
