Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Ragusa

The Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Ragusa is an Institute of Religious women, founded by Blessed Maria Schininà on May 9, 1889, in Ragusa Sicily, Italy. Maria Schininà was born into a wealthy noble family in Ragusa (Sicily) Italy, April 10, 1844. She spent her youth enjoying all the pleasures of music, dance and fashion that her privileged station gave her. However, by responding to a call from God, she renounced her title and her wealth to serve the poor, the sick and the suffering. She spent herself out of love for Jesus, seeing Him in all those whom she served.

On her death bed, she said to the sisters, “Love the Holy rule, Love one another as Sisters, Love souls.”

We must all live and die in the Sacred Heart of Jesus.” ~ Blessed Maria Schininà ~Today, the Sisters of the Sacred Heart continue the works of mercy in all parts of the world. They arrived in the diocese of Charlottetown on the evening of April 9th, 2018 so as to have the house officially opened on April 10th, the date of the birth of Blessed Maria Schininà.
