When I felt that the Lord was calling me to religious life, though I did not know to which Congregation, I decided to ask Sister Ward to help me decide.  I chose her because I trusted that she would not influence me to join the Society if I did not want to.  (How independent young people can be!)

I came to see her a few weeks later and dropped into the chapel for a visit.  There was Sister Lowenstein, the acristan, kneeling bent over, carefully dusting the legs of the altar. She stood up after a while and I noticed that her face was serene and happy.

I said to myself, “If doing such a simple job can make a person happy, there must be something in this life.”  I joined the Society of the Sacred Heart. I learnt later that hours of prayer and contemplation of Jesus enable us to build up0 a close relationship through Him with the Father.  It is because of this relationship that I stay in the Society.

Who we are..?

We are a small, diverse and inclusive group, welcoming in our midst a variety of socio-cultural backgrounds, ages and temperaments. Primarily an educational congregation, our earliest ventures were in the field of education

Sophia College for Women in Mumbai was our first foundation in 1941, and remains the institution with which we are most often associated. The College has continued to grow in the years since then, and while some sisters continue to work there, a number have moved on into other areas of service. Today, the range includes Schools, Colleges& Nursery Schools.
