Religious of the Sacred Heart of
Mary (R.S.H.M.) The paths we walk
are paved with a shared dream…that
all may have life and have it to the full.
Founded in France in 1849, we are now in 14
different countries in Europe, Africa and the
Americas. Prayer and community are the twin
pillars that support us in many different forms of
ministry including education, health care, pastoral
ministry, social work, legal services and retreats.
While representing different cultures, languages,
talents and experiences, we have one heart and
one spirit. We have staked our lives on the belief
that God is revealed to us in creation, in the person
of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.
The most vulnerable on earth and the vulnerability
of the earth itself are the focus of our quest in these
critical times to know and love God, and to make
God known and loved. We invite you to consider
walking with us. Contact: Sr. Anna Maria Lionetti,
