The Missionaries of the Sacred Heart are an international congregation of religious priests and brothers who reach out to those who are poor—materially, emotionally, or spiritually—to bring God’s compassionate and tender love to all.
We are known as the MSC from our name in Latin, Missionarii Sacratissimi Cordis.
“May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be loved everywhere” is our motto. It was coined by Father Jules Chevalier, MSC, who founded our Society in France in 1854. Since that time, we have been committed to bring God’s love, revealed in Jesus, wherever we are sent. You can find us ministering in a variety of ways, from healing the hearts of those who struggle at home in the United States to building schools and communities in the jungles of Papua New Guinea.
