Welcome to MSC Missions

The Society of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart (MSC) is an international community of religious priests and brothers who work to share the message of God’s love in the ever-changing social climate of our world.

What does “MSC” stand for?

We are best known by our initials, MSC. This abbreviation comes from our name in Latin, Missionarii Sacratissimi Cordis.

What do the MSC do?

“May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be everywhere loved.”

This is the guiding philosophy of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart. MSC priests could find themselves working and ministering in any number of different ways, from guiding people through personal struggles at home in Ireland and the UK, to building communities and encouraging social development in areas of poverty on overseas mission projects.
