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.
