Missionary Sisters of the US Province

The U.S. Province MSC Sisters are missionary religious women of an international, intercultural community. The Sisters were founded in Hiltrup, Germany on March 25, 1900 by Fr. Hubert Linckens, MSC. He shared the charism and spirituality of his own congregation and its Founder, Fr. Jules Chevalier, MSC. Fr. Chevalier discovered the compassionate love of God in the Heart of Christ. He believed that this love was a “remedy” for the evils of his time and felt urged to make God’s love known to all people. He expressed this in what is the motto of all the members of the Chevalier Family: “May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be loved everywhere, now and forever.” In this spirit of mission, the MSC Sisters were sent to Papua New Guinea in 1902. Today Missionary Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus are present in 19 countries and on all inhabited continents: Australia, China, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Germany, Guatemala, India, Italy, Korea, Kiribati, Mexico, Namibia, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Romania, Spain, and the United States. On August 10, 2008, the MSC Sisters of the U.S. Province, which includes the U.S. and Mexico, opened a Centennial Year of service in the United States. Our charism and spirituality is what makes us unique and is what empowers us to be women of faith risking for the Gospel.
