ABOUT MISSIONARIES OF THE SACRED HEART

We are the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, or MSC from the Latin Missionarii Sacratissimi Cordis. We are an order of Roman Catholic priests and brothers founded by Fr. Jules Chevalier in 1854 in Issoudun, France. Our order is based on the spirituality of the Sacred Heart, focusing on building healthy relationships with God, self, and others. We believe that encountering God can transform lives and heal relationships. Our founder, Fr. Chevalier gave the MSC the motto “May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be loved everywhere.” Today, we also follow a mission statement, “we love as Jesus loved.”

As a missionary order, more than 1,900 MSCs have brought the Gospel to 54 countries, provided pastoral care to others in their spiritual journeys, fought for social justice and human rights, and served the poor, the alienated, and those without hope. We take vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience as the members of a religious order.

We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. All contributions to the MSC and/or related programs are tax-deductible.
