"We participate in the mission of the Church through the service of education which is our way of continuing the work of Christ. This service of education is directed chiefly toward the young and those who bear within them the future of the world." (From the Constitutions (#17) of the Society of the Sacred Heart)
- Twenty-four Sacred Heart Schools in the United States-Canada Province educate 12,500 students annually to be women and men of faith, compassion, courage and love.
The Conference on Sacred Heart Education has as its purpose to strengthen the Society’s mission in schools that bear our name.
Spirituality Programs: Our various spirituality programs provide opportunities for men and women to take time away for prayer and contemplation. For some, this means discerning a religious vocation. For all, these programs offer a way to rediscover or reconnect with their God and the Sacred Heart charism.
