We are Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, consecrated women of the Church. Impelled by the Spirit active in each of us and faithful to the charism of Clelia Merloni, we seek to make the compassionate Heart of Christ better known, loved, and served. We do this by personal and communal witness to the Gospel, commitment to growth in holiness, and ministry to the people of God.
