Who we are

Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, an Australian community, in a worldwide religious congregation.

Ministry Mission

Jesus loved with a human heart: with him we proclaim his love to the world.

We work to discover through advocacy, healing and reconciliation, God's presence in our world.


We are to be on earth the heart of God. God has no other heart but ours.

In this edition (an editorial by Hans Kwakman MSC reflecting on Jules Chevalier’s vision), there are articles from all around the world (with contributions from Australia by Fred Stubenrauch and Ancilla White on Lay OLSH). The magazine has been compiled by Rita Cleuren, Europe, longtime leader of the Lay MSC, Alison Mackenzie, Australia, first General Secretary, and Doris Machado, Brazil, deputy secretary.
