How can you Help?

When we accept the abundant love of Jesus and respond to His Sacred Heart with open hearts of our own, we are called to ask: "What more can I do?" There are many ways, through prayer, gifts and action, you can help us share the love of the Sacred Heart.



WATCH a brief video of the January 3-6 US Province Election Assembly during which Fr. Vien Nguyen was elected as the 16th provincial superior of the US Province. In the video are moments from the election process itself, but also comments from SCJs about their hopes for the future, the challenges the province faces, and those things for which Dehonians are grateful.
