Support the Society
The Society of the Sacred Heart continues its mission each day:
Revealing God’s Love in the Heart of the World.
We do this through fidelity to relationships – associates, alumnae/I, colleagues in mission, benefactors and friends – so that the love of Christ may be more widely and deeply known.
We are deeply committed to prayer and contemplation as we serve in the Network of Sacred Heart Schools, in colleges, universities and other educational settings, in spiritual ministry centers, in justice and peace initiatives and caring for our elderly sisters.
"We participate in the mission of the Church through the service of education which is our way of continuing the work of Christ. This service of education is directed chiefly toward the young and those who bear within them the future of the world." (From the Constitutions (#17) of the Society of the Sacred Heart)
Our elders continue to live vibrant community lives of prayer and service, with daily liturgy, frequent contacts with friends and families and young people.
Ongoing professional care of elderly Religious of the Sacred Heart takes place at Oakwood in Atherton, CA; Abba House, Avila Lodge and Teresian House in Albany, NY; and Caritas Residence in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Funds are used to provide care for our sisters and for maintenance of facilities as needed.
