Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, an Australian community, in a worldwide religious congregation.
Jesus loved with a human heart: with him we proclaim his love to the world.
We work to discover through advocacy, healing and reconciliation, God's presence in our world.
We are to be on earth the heart of God. God has no other heart but ours.

ACKNOWLEDGING JOHN GRAHAM MSC
John Graham is not so well-known as other members of the Australian province. He has spent most of his life as an MSC working in Japan.
We are acknowledging his turning 80 today and his ministry.
John was a ‘late vocation’, making his first profession on February 26th 1965, ordained on 9th May 1970. After some time on the staff at Chevalier College, he was appointed to Japan, serving in various parishes staffed by the MSC. In 1985, he spent a year’s sabbatical in Melbourne at the National Pastoral Institute.
He is one of the last three Australian MSC working in Japan (along with Brian Taylor MSC and Keith Humphries who recently celebrated his Golden Jubilee of ordination).
