The Chevalier Family

The vision of Father Jules Chevalier, to make the Sacred Heart known and loved everywhere, led him to the deep desire to found several congregations. He also wanted a separate branch of laity, who would be formed and share in the spirit, charism and mission of the congregations.

In 1854 Fr. Jules Chevalier founded a Society of Priests and Brothers whom he called Missionaries of the Sacred Heart (M.S.C.). Twenty years later, he founded us, a Congregation of Sisters called Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart (F.D.N.S.C.). In 1900 the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart were founded in Germany by a Dutch MSC, Fr. Hubert Linckens. These three religious families, with their lay members form the Chevalier Family.

Nowadays 3 religious congregations with an international network of laity are all part of one Chevalier family:
