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.

Many people have contacted us, asking if there is a way that they can help those affected by the earthquakes in Italy, as well as the devastating fires in Portugal. Fr. Massimo Bellillo, SCJ, the provincial superior of the South Italian Province, said that what is needed most is financial assistance so that people can rebuild their homes and businesses. The North Italian Province is directing donations to the local Caritas office. You can also make a donation through the US Province at www.poshusa.org.

“What happens after this life?” That’s what Fr. Nick Brown asked himself when he was at the top of an electrical pole in Sundance, Wyoming. It was a beautiful spot; from his perch Fr. Nick could see the Devil’s Tower natural monument. But instead of enjoying the gorgeous view, he started to ask himself “What if…?” And that question led him on a vocation journey straight to the Priests of the Sacred Heart.
