Year of Prayer

Year of Prayer | Año de Oración | Année de Prières

From November 18, 2017 - November 18, 2018, prayers written by Religious of the Sacred Heart will be available on rscjinternational.org and rscj.org and via email.

 A web-based year of prayer:
•    to bind us together across the world
•    to introduce Philippine to those who do not know her and to deepen the love and appreciation of those who do
•    to consider topics significant in Philippine’s story, for example: prayer, friendship, mission, immigration, community, Eucharist, cultural challenges, sense of “failure”, etc.
•    to reflect on “frontiers” then and now – issues, challenges, dreams, questions, general chapter priorities
•    to explore Philippine’s relevance for today and for the future of the Society’s mission.
