New Card Available for Christmas!
Posted November 15, 2013
We have an additional Prayer Enrollment about to be made available! This new card is a Christmas Card featuring a beautiful photo of the presepio (nativity) scene created by Sr. Mariette Moan in the Sacred Heart Chapel at Mount Sacred Heart. Our online order form has been updated to include this new selection.
Many of us are familiar with the prayer enrollment cards sent out by many religious organizations and the Apostles are pleased to offer two of our own. There is one card for serious need (sympathy, illness, comfort, and healing) and another for joyful occasions (birthday, congratulations, anniversaries, graduations, etc.). We have a page on this site dedicated to the cards and it includes Adobe Reader pdf files so you can see the cards as well as an order form if you would like some sent to you.»

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.
