Today, the 6th of September 2018, eleven RSCJ
were welcomed by Superior General Barbara Dawson
to probation at the Villa Lante in Rome.
"I welcome you in the name of all the Religious of the Sacred Heart around the world and our global Sacred Heart family who hold you in prayer and hope especially during these five months as you prepare for your public profession of your “forever” commitment to Jesus Christ."
Here are a few photos taken during the event.
