Feast of the Sacred Heart

Feast of the Sacred Heart

On the Feast of the Sacred Heart, we invite you to reflect on words from our Superior General, Barbara Dawson, RSCJ: “All of us are called to pray deeply. We are called to deepen our love – within the Heart of Christ, for each other and for our world and its people. We are called to participate in whatever way is possible for us. No one is too old or too young to be co-creators of our future.”

One heart and one soul in the Heart of Jesus,
The Provincial Team

Feast of the Sacred Heart

On Friday, June 23, 2017, the Religious of the Sacred Heart from the United States-Canada Province celebrated a special Eucharist on the Feast of the Sacred Heart – the feast day when Saint Philippine Duchesne arrived in the New World.

The Mass and reception were held at the chapel at Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School in St. Louis, Missouri. Videocameras were set up in the chapel, allowing members of the Sacred Heart family across the United States and Canada to join by webcast.

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."

Blue Hyacinth Day

Blue Hyacinth Day

On May 6th, in 1882 Janet Erskine Stuart had a life-changing experience of God amidst a garden of blue hyacinths. In a flash of insight she knew and embraced the vocation to which God was inviting her. Every year thereafter, on May 6th, she quietly celebrated that event in the garden and renewed her sense of vocation and purpose.
