Short History
The Sacred Heart Congregation for women is a community of love which took shape in the Syro-Malabar Church in Kerala by the infinite providence of God. At the beginning of the 20th century, the church in Kerala felt the lack of religious congregation for women which provided opportunity for the common for a dedicated life and for the care of the orphans. The miserable conditions of neglected children and the aged destitute touched Rev. Fr Mathew Kadalikkattil who was the assistant vicar of the Cathedral, Pala during the first decade of the 20th century. He was a fervent devotee of the   Sacred Heart of Jesus and a man of compassionate heart. He spent days and nights before the Blessed Sacrament. Seeking his divine will and divine inspiration that came to him marked the beginning of the Sacred Heart Congregation. The aim of the Congregation is that the members should live radically the discipleship of Christ, experiencing deeply the compassionate love of God, the father, manifested through the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and sharing it with others, especially the poor and afflicted.
    The Congregation was founded on 1 January 1911 with four members in a temporary modest house at Pala by the Servant of God Fr Mathew Kadalikkattil. At first the communities in different eparchies considered themselves autonomous. In 1974 the Mother Generals of these independent units of Pala, Changanassery and Kothamangalam inspired by the Spirit of Vatican II merged under the Superior-Generals. Proclamation of unification was made on 1 August 1974. On 11 March 1976 our Congregation was raised to the status of “Juris Pontifices” by the Holy See. The growth of the Congregation continued steadily. Today the Congregation has 11 Provinces and one Vice-Province with 3600 sisters and 450 houses in various parts of the world.
    Our apostolate covers care of destitute, health care, home mission, education, social service, orphanage, schools for the mentally retarded, home for the aged and disabled, evangelization, press and publication.
     We also help in the Parish work like Catechizing and Liturgical training. In all fields of our work we try to hold up and display our special charism of the overflowing compassionate love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
    The Generalate is situated at Manganam, Kottayam. The cause of Beatification of Servant of God Fr Mathew Kadalikkttil is in progress. Mission Works in the Malankara Catholic Church
     In the course of time, the congregation began to grow and the sisters were called to setrve in many parishes and the Eparchies. Reading the sign of the time, the Sacred Heart Sisters of Kothamangalam, Pala and Idukki Provinces called to extend our humble service in Syro-Malankara Major Archiepiscopal Eparchy of Thrivananthapuram. His Grace Benedict Mar Gregorios, the Arch Bishop of Thiruvananthapuram cordially invited us to the Eparchy, and the first house was opened at Bethany Hills, Nalanchira `S.H.C. Sarvodaya` on 15 January 1975.
