Caritas Christi Center, a ministry of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, is dedicated to providing formal and informal opportunities for spiritual growth and faith formation in the Catholic tradition. Caritas Christi Center invites God’s people to deepen their relationship with Jesus through prayer, study, and mutual interaction in order that they might bear witness to His compassionate Heart.

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.
