On Friday, June 23, 2017, the Religious of the Sacred Heart from the United States-Canada Province celebrated a special Eucharist on the Feast of the Sacred Heart – the feast day when Saint Philippine Duchesne arrived in the New World.
The Mass and reception were held at the chapel at Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School in St. Louis, Missouri. Videocameras were set up in the chapel, allowing members of the Sacred Heart family across the United States and Canada to join by webcast.
Religious of the Sacred Heart, Associates and Children of Mary in attendance renewed their vows and promises.
