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.

Peace, Justice, Creation

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.

Be a Missionary or Lay Missionary of the Sacred Heart

msc world puzzleMore than ever, what the world needs now are men and women who can be missionaries of God’s compassion, kindness, gentleness, and healing love.

Whether you feel called to be a Religious (a Priest or Brother) or Lay Missionary, we invite you to join our congregation.

Through all of our actions and words, we seek to promote healthy relationships with self, others and God, to reach out to the isolated, marginalized and the poor, and to proclaim God's love to the world. Walk with us as we follow the Way of the Heart and be on earth the Heart of Christ.

Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart (FDNSC)

In 1874, in collaboration with Mother Marie Louise Hartzer, Jules Chevalier also founded the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart (FDNSC) as the sister congregation of the MSC.

Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart (MSC)

In 1900 the French FDNSC were not permitted to enter Germany, so Fr. Hubert Linckens MSC founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart (MSC Sisters) in the spirit of Fr. Chevalier.

From the very beginning, Fr Chevalier had the vision that the fullness of mission would only be realised in a global project that included laity alongside religious men and women and diocesan clergy. Today, throughout the world, there is a growing network of laity associated with the charism and mission inspired by Fr Chevalier.
