Who is the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts?

Our History

The Congregation was born on Christmas Eve 1800 when Pierre Coudrin and Henriette Aymer de Chevalerie pronounced their vows. It grew out of their experiences during the French Revolution and a shared vision of a community of men and women sharing the message of God's unconditional love.
