There are approximately 2,200 Priests of the Sacred Heart in more than forty countries on five continents. There are 100 Priests of the Sacred Heart in the United States.
The Priests of the Sacred Heart do not condone sexual misconduct of any kind. We have detailed policies regarding this issue that are audited and certified by a well-respected national agency. These policies are re-evaluated and updated regularly. We take all accusations of misconduct seriously and cooperate fully with civil authorities in the investigation of such allegations. Our concern is that any injury be healed and that those in need of help be helped.
The Feast of the Sacred Heart changes each year, depending on the date of Easter. It is always celebrated on the tenth Friday after Easter Sunday (or 19 days after Pentecost).
