Letter for the Feast of Philippine Duchesne

On November 18 we celebrate the feast day of Rose Philippine Duchesne. 

On this day, we begin a Year of Prayer that will help us celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Society of the Sacred Heart’s courageous decision to live its mission and charism beyond known frontiers.

We likewise begin a Society-wide engagement and conversation to help us integrate more deeply our commitment to Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation (JPIC) in the life and mission of the Society.

Sister Barbara Dawson, our Superior General, presents in her letter for Philippine's feast these two important and inter-connected opportunities for RSCJ and the whole Sacred Heart family.
