200 Anniversary of Jules Chevalier

Wednesday March 20, 2024

The USA. The Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Sacred Heart Villa, Pennsylvania USA on March 16, 2024, celebrated the 200th Birthday Anniversary of our Founder, Father Jules Chevalier, MSC. He was born on March 15, 1824. Because this date was on a Friday during Lent, we celebrated the occasion the day after. Bishop Alfred Shlert, Bishop of the Diocese of Allentown, presided at our Mass of Thanksgiving. We had about 95 persons in our chapel: MSC brothers, priests, Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart, Lay members, diocesan clergy and seminarians, and many friends of the MSC. Our Provincial, Fr. Richard Kennedy, MSC, provided the homily for us.
