These pages present a community of women, the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary, who have taken to heart the words of Jesus, "I come so that all may have life." We seek to direct our prayer, ourselves, and our resources to those areas where life is vulnerable, opportunities are scarce, and human dignity is threatened. The sisters of the Sacred Heart of Mary are ordinary people with an extraordinary calling--to live generously in the love of Jesus, finding the face of God in the beauty and the anguish of this fragile world.
The Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary is an international congregation of Catholic women religious. We serve in 13 countries in diverse ministries. We invite you to explore this website of our Eastern and Western American provinces to learn more about our mission and history, our sisters and ministries, and to learn how you can collaborate with us in meeting the needs of God's people.

“…It is up to us to work with Jesus Christ to transform the world. This is our vocation. It is for this mission that God has pre-destined us from all eternity."
