The Priests of the Sacred Heart (SCJs) is a Catholic religious community of brothers and priests devoted to the Heart of Jesus. As our Mission Statement says, “We are called to be, especially among the poor, prophets of love and servants of reconciliation.” Whether you seek to examine your vocation, learn about our ministries, explore Catholic issues or support our work, we invite you to join us in walking with God’s people.
What factors predict whether a man will stay committed to the priesthood? This has been Fr. Yulius Sunardi’s question for the past two years as he did his doctoral research. On November 19th he presented the results of his work to seminarians and faculty at Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology.

From 1982 – 1991 Br. Leonard Elder, SCJ, was a missionary in the African country of Zaire. On November 17, he returns for the first time in 23 years. “[In Africa] God, through the voices of many people, called me again to pursue studies for the priesthood,” said Fr. Leonard.
