Sisters of the Society Devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in St. Louis.
Sisters of the Society Devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in St. Louis.

We were invited to the St. Louis Archdiocese by then Archbishop Justin Rigali in 2002; we are blessed to serve in Paul VI Catechetical Institute.

We share our charism as Sacred Heart Sisters in the apostolate teaching our Five Step Illustrated Method to catechists across the archdiocese as well as to Kenrick-Glennon college and theologate seminarians; offering an online prayer course based on Part IV of the Catechism of the Catholic Church; parish family catechesis.  Working out of the Cardinal Rigali Center we offer retreats to various groups on site and in other locations.  We live at All Souls Parish in Overland.
