This winter issue of Heart magazine explores the myriad ways our Sacred Heart family lives out and continues to grow the mission of the Society of the Sacred Heart to discover and reveal God's love in the heart of the world, with a focus on the RSCJ's fourth vow, a commitment to the education of youth.
If you know someone to whom you would like to introduce Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat, here is the book. Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat (1779-1865): Founder of the Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a short biography that presents the essential facts of her life and significance for education and religious life. Written in response to many requests for something short on Sophie, it is suitable for Associates, Sacred Heart alumnae, colleagues, and friends.
The Society of the Sacred Heart United States – Canada Province publications committee is delighted to announce the publication of the long awaited Transformed: One Congregation’s Response to the Second Vatican Council and the Calls of the World.
In this 20th anniversary issue of Heart magazine, we take a look back at the origins of Heart and explore, today, the many ways the Religious of the Sacred Heart (RSCJ) are living and building the future of the Sacred Heart mission with and across different generations.
Biographer and historian of the American frontier, Louise Callan, RSCJ, wrote in 1935:
“And through the whole of this, like a golden thread binding it into unity, runs the character of our greatest Indian missionary nun, Mother Lucile Mathevon - a novice of Mother Duchesne, foundress of the house of St. Charles (1828), and for about 35 years the very heart and soul of the Indian Mission.”
This book details the life and ministry of Sister Mathevon, focusing most prominently on her relationship with the Potawatomi.
“Walking into the Future Together With Courage and Confidence” was the theme of the United States – Canada Province Assembly that took place in July 2022. This theme continues throughout the pages of this Heart magazine issue. Amid the Advent season, the stories in this issue shine a light on partnering organizations, donors, alumnae/i, young people, staff and educators, who all share in the Society's mission and journey with the Religious of the Sacred Heart to discover and reveal God's love in the heart of the world.
With gratitude in our hearts, we share the 2022 Mission Advancement Report. Thank you to all of our donors for joining us in our mission to be the love of the Sacred Heart in our world!
