Who are we

MSC stands for Missionaries of the Sacred Heart

The initials M.S.C. come from the Latin, Missionarii Sacratissimi Cordis, (Missionnaires du Sacre Coeur in French), the name of our Religious Congregation founded by Fr. Jules Chevalier at Issoudun, France in 1854.

We are an international order of Brothers and Priests within the Catholic Church numbering about 1900 working in over fifty-five countries, on six continents.

The Australian Province has around 140 members and our ministries include: parishes, retreat centres, education working with urban and traditional aborigines, working in the Media, chaplains to the prisons, universities, hospitals, health care in ministry to people living with HIV+/AIDS, tradesmen and in many other areas.
