We hope you enjoy these "Stories from the heart" from our 2018-2019 Annual Report as they highlight the experiences of those throughout our Sacred Heart community.

Dear God,

Please guide our journey as
Associates as we:

Engage our minds

Enrich our spirits

Open our hearts to reveal the love of Christ in all we do.

Be our companion on the journey
as we build our tapestry through our
encounters with each other.

Weave our threads beyond our borders
to a broader frontier by engaging with
each other, our collaborators, and with
all whom we come in contact.

Inspire and encourage us as we build
community through our encounters
that deepen our connections in both a
contemplative and apostolic manner.

We pray for the grace to deepen our
spiritual lives and yield to our call as
Associates to actively engage in social
justice and to take an active role in
social awareness that compels to action.

Finally, help us to remember our
commitment that bonds us together
in our love and devotion to the charism.
