The Society of the Sacred Heart is an international congregation of some 2,700 women in 42 different countries of the world. Sharing the spirit of St Madeleine Sophie Barat, we are united in our mission: to deepen our understanding of God's love and to discover and reveal that love to the world, through service with the hearts of educators.  

Religious of the Sacred Heart (RSCJ), share life together in small communities and seek, though prayer and contemplation, to be drawn ever more deeply into the Heart of God. United to God's Heart we are challenged to make choices for justice in response to the Gospel and the needs of the world. 

At this time in the story of the Society and in a world that is calling us to renew our commitment to the poor, to the care of creation and to the cause of justice, we feel called to be women with a deep experience of the love of Jesus , desiring to live this relationship through community, aware of our need for growth and development in order to be more available for mission. 

We invite you to meet us and explore our life:, our mission, our prayer and spirituality through the pages of our website.

The times in which we live call for fervor, fidelity and generosity.

The heart's best security is to

 trust in God alone.
