On November 18th we celebrate the memory of St Philippine Duchesne, our first missionary and second saint, whom you can read more about here.
May Philippine pray for and obtain for us her indomitable courage and perseverance in these times of trial and uncertainty.
On the 21st we celebrate our 222nd birthday! This is the anniversary of the date in 1800 when St Madeleine Sophie and her first companions made their vows, in a clandestine Mass in an attic in Paris; an event which gave birth to the Society of the Sacred Heart. Two centuries later, may we all continue to be inspired by the spirit, courage and vision of Sophie, Philippine and the many generous, prayerful and brave women who have gone before us.
Schools come together to fundraise the building of a new school in Kenya...
We wish everyone a Happy Feast of the Sacred Heart.
