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.

Frater Justin Krenke, SCJ, renewed his vows this morning (August 12). “God calls all of us to go out in any way we can to be a part of the world, not a part from the world,” said Fra. Justin in his reflection prior to his vow renewal. “This is the message of Fr. Dehon.. So today, before all of you, before Fr. John [Czyzynski], before my brothers in community, I very joyfully renew my vows and continue the message of Christ and of our dear founder, Fr. Dehon.”
