Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

As a closing act of these two chapters, our entire Religious Family was formally consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus on July 23, 2016.  Each general superior, Fr. Gustavo Nieto, IVE, and Mother Corredentora Rodriguez, SSVM, led their respective institutes in the consecration.  O Jesu, fac cor meum secundum Cor Tuum! (Oh Jesus, make my heart like unto Thine!)
