Acts of the Apostles: Mission and Service

Open your heart to meet Christ in the young, the elderly, and immigrant communities by serving with the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Our volunteer program is open to women ages 18–35.

What to Expect

Learn more about the options for service that meet the needs of many lifestyles:

  • Week-long immersion living with sisters while serving in their ministries.
  • Weekly hours of service on set days/times according to volunteer’s availability in sites where Apostles serve.

Some funds are available to help defray cost of travel to ministry sites. We provide room and board for week-long service.
