The Fervent Daughters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (FDSHJ) was founded by Mother Marykutty FDSHJ in 1981 at Punnavely in the Archdiocese of Changanacherry, Kerala, South India under the patronage and guidance of His Eminence Antony Cardinal Padiyara then Archbishop of Changanacherry. She was given the special Charism by our Lord to spread the devotion to His Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through Family Apostolate, Parish Apostolate and Perpetual Adoration. The Motto of the FDSHJ is ‘AD MAJOREM DEI GLORIAM’.
The Institute of FDSHJ is a Religious Congregation in the Syro-Malabr Church, under the patronage of the Archbishop of Changanassery and works for the spread of the Kingdom of God in any part of the world and under any Rite. It keeps the missionary nature of the Institute and thereby to follow the special call of the Founder, to work with universal dimension.
Family Apostolate: The sisters frequently visit the families to promote, prayer life in the families. They run Nursery Schools and small scale industrial Schools.
Parish Apostolate: The Sisters teach Catechism and give animation to various types of pious associations, which facilitate the catholic life in the Parish.
Perpetual Adoration:
For the growth and the success of all its activities FDSHJ conducts perpetual adoration. This helps the Sisters to keep the spirit and charism of the Institute with a continual flow of graces and blessings from above. The Institute is conducting Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, in Mother House at Punnavely, Cathedral Churches of Muvattupuzha and Chandha.
    The Charism is being actualized also through various other activities like old age homes, homes for the mentally and physically challenged persons and other social and charitable activities. Sisters run 3 old age homes and they are working in the field of psychiatry and Rehabilitation centers etc. of the other Institutions.
    Now we have 161 Sisters in 38 communities working in rural areas of various States of India, especially  Assam, Maharashtra, Chathisghat,  Andhra, Thamil Nadu and Kerala.
