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.

MATTER OF CHURCH AND STATE
Sydney Morning Herald March 15, 2011
Some may say he has a lot to answer for, but no other Australian can claim to have been so pivotal in shaping so many premiers. A Catholic priest, Father Tyson Doneley, is looking at the third of his students to run a state government.
Now resident at Sacred Heart Monastery in Kensington, Tyson turned 90 in January, but in younger days he was rector of St John's College, Darwin, in the 1970s when Barry O'Farrell was a student.
Tyson was rector of Chevalier College in the 1960s just as John Fahey completed secondary schooling at Bowral.
Earlier, he had been rector of Downlands College, Toowoomba when future Queensland premier Mike Ahern attended.
(The article promotes Tyson to a rectorship of Downlands which was not the case, though Tyson Manor is named for his family.)
Daramalan College is the Alma Mater of the current Federal Government minister, Stephen Conroy. With such precedents, the next MSC College for a premier is Monivae.
