The Society of the Sacred Heart was founded
by St. Madeleine Sophie Barat in the year 1800 in france…
Founded in 1939, the Indian Province of the Society of the Sacred Heart is part of
an international body of religious sisters who share the same vision and charism:
Women who seek to live in tune with the Sprit, responsive to the needs of the present
and the calls of the future, while remaining faithful to tradition that is anchored in the
Church, local and international Women of compassion and love, committed to nourish
and nurture life in all its forms, to work for community in our fragmented world
Women who have experienced the love of the Open Heart of God and strive to spread
that love in the world around them.
There is a joy in committing ourselves heart and soul to whatever task we are called –
and in placing our unique gifts at the service of the congregation & those among whom
we work. This is the joy that impels us onwards, that energises and empowers us.
Sophie Barat (1779-1865)
