Father Jules Chevalier's motto, "May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be Everywhere Loved!" became the driving force of his life. As well as establishing two religious orders, he was very aware of the strength, power for good, and spirituality of lay people.
By the time of his death, he already had more than a million people enrolled in the Confraternity of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart. Today we use the word ‘Associates’ for those who find themselves at home in our spirituality and who want to find guidance, support, and companionship along the journey, as well as rejoicing to be for others "the Heart of God on earth".
It is within their own life situation that our Associates fulfill their special mission of love. Their way to the Heart of Jesus and to the hearts of others is their prayer and understanding help in needs that arise in the here and now of their lives.
Associates are however also one with the Sisters in their mission, in fact, extending it far beyond the sphere of the Sisters' influence.
The 'belonging' of Associates in our Congregation is expressed in our Constitutions approved by the Church.
O.L.S.H. Associates are found in all States of Australia and in many other countries where our sisters work.
