Missionaries of the Sacred Heart
Fr Frank Gallagher MSC is the Regional Leader of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart in South Africa. Fr Frank was appointed Regional Leader in January 2015, having worked in South Africa for over 25 years.
In his role as Regional Leader, Fr Frank is responsible for overseeing the missionary work of MSC members in South Africa. The region is made up of Missionaries of the Sacred Heart from Namibia, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Belgium, and France, who work alongside MSCs from the Irish Province, some of whom have been ministering in South Africa for more than 50 years.
As Regional Leader, Fr Frank provides guidance and support for these MSCs, who work in varied and often very difficult circumstances. He travels regularly, visiting the different mission projects in the region and making sure that our MSCs have the support and direction they need as they work to make positive changes in areas of profound poverty and extreme hardship.
