Annual Appeal 2018

Dear Friends, 

At the heart of all the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus do, is a passion for sharing the love of Christ that impels us to assure each person we meet that God loves them beyond measure. 

In a world marked all too often by heartbreak, natural disasters, and strident dialogue that serves only to divide God's people, the apostles are called in this 2018 year of reparation to reconcile divisions as we tend to the broken-hearted and wounded body of Christ. We do this work of loving, hope-filled transformation in myriad ministries including education, pastoral ministry, health care, immigrant services, prisons, and foreign missions. 

We remain grateful to our benefactors who believe, and in so many ways share, in our mission to recognize, love, and serve the wounded heart of Christ in God's kingdom here on earth. Together in our world, we strive to live Paul’s words: 

"Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful."  - Colossians 3

Won't you partner with us in this great work of reconciliation by generously providing the means to bring God's love to all we encounter?

In the Heart of Christ,
