Meet the Society

Sr. Carlota Duarte

The Society of the Sacred Heart unites some 2,200 women in 41 countries in a global mission: to deepen our understanding of God’s love and reveal it to the world through the service of education. Contemplatives in action, the Religious of the Sacred Heart, also known as RSCJ, live communally and serve as educators in many settings, including high schools and colleges, artists’ studios and parishes, medical and legal facilities, social agencies and shelters.

Developing leaders and building relationships among people from all walks of life are at the heart of our vocation.

We share life together in small communities and seek, through prayer and contemplation, to be drawn ever more deeply into intimacy with God, who is always alive and active in our hearts and who challenges us to make choices for justice and peace in response to the Gospel and needs of the world.

Our Charism

The gift of the Spirit to the Society of the Sacred Heart

By our charism, we are consecrated to
we answer His call
to discover and reveal His love
letting ourselves be transformed by His Spirit
so as to live united and conformed to Him,
and through our love and service
to radiate the very love of His Heart
