Founded in 1894 by Monsignor Francesco Maria Greco and Mother Maria Teresa De Vincenti, the Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts began its work by providing much needed education and catechesis to the poor of southern Italy.
Over time, our missions have spread to the United States, Albania, Argentina, and India where we operate schools and participate in parish programs.
The principal components of our charism are: a special consecration to the divine hearts of Jesus and Mary, evangelization in the form of religious and formal education of children and young adults, promotion and elevation of human life particularly in the charitable service to the most needy, and a rich prayer life centered in community.
