SSH Affiliates


As An Affiliate

Lay Affiliation is a response to the call to live out a baptismal commitment within the context of a religious community and is open to men and women who share our commitment to the gospel values. In collaboration with our religious congregation an affiliate makes a non-vowed commitment for the sake of the kingdom of God. He or she shares in some aspects of the spirituality and charism of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Affiliates commit to participate in the ministries of the Congregation. Through their lives and in their work places, they spread devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. They make reparations for sins by the examples of their lives and encourage others to lead a life of holiness. They spread the love of the Sacred Heart through the various ministries identified by the Sisters of the Sacred Heart. They also help the Congregation financially.
