Preserving the Past

The Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus have served in the United States for over a century. During that time, missions have opened and closed, reflecting

changing needs and opportunities. Yet the tradition of Apostle service has remained constant and the people and places of the past are integral to what we as a congregation are today.
At the Mount Sacred Heart Provincialate in Hamden, CT is located the Archives of the United States Province. Several initiatives are underway, some made possible by advances in technology, that will enable us to permanently preserve the documents, photographs, and memorabilia that chronicle our history. Here on our website we are able to share with you information on our deceased sisters; we invite you to refer to our obituaries where you will find stories and perhaps photos of Apostles you may have once known. A few of our retired sisters living at Sacred Heart Manor are in their 90s and still recall some of our Apostle pioneers!
Please also visit our Locate an Apostle section where you will find a form for getting in touch with a current member of the congregation.
