Who We Are

The Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus (of Hiltrup) is an international congregation of women known as MSC sisters who consecrate their lives to God and to the service of God's people in the different countries.  To make known the love and kindness of God our Father, revealed in Jesus Christ is the charism and spirit of the Congregation. Their motto is "May the Sacred Heart of Jesus”!
 
Founded over 100 years ago by Fr. Hubert Linckens, MSC in Germany in response to a call and need for missionaries to serve in the South Pacific, the MSC sisters were formed in the Spirituality of the Heart inspired by Jules Chevalier, MSC, their spiritual founder.   From simple beginnings, the Congregation grew and expanded in the early 1900s to other countries.  Over the years, the MSC sisters in response to the needs of the times have continued to begin new missions.
