Dear Friend of the Sacred Heart,

Love and mercy … how important they are to the world today! These concepts are central to the ministry of the Priests of the Sacred Heart.

One hundred years ago, our congregation's founder, Fr. Leo John Dehon, involved himself - despite cautions from some brethren - with the poor, the repressed and those who were threatened. His call for social action in ministry did not rise from a sense of moral obligation as much as a response to the love Jesus revealed on the cross.

Our priests and brothers continue reaching out to the poor, the repressed and those who are threatened. In an era burdened by unimaginable circumstances, who can doubt the world needs more mercy?

Please know we at the Priests of the Sacred Heart are praying for you, your family and all those serving in the military. In turn, I hope you will pray for us.

Gratefully in Christ,

Father Dominic
