The Oblate Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a pontifical institute founded in 1894 by Blessed Teresa Casini in Grottaferrata, Italy. Today, the sisters also serve the Church in Italy, Brazil, Peru, India, and Africa.
The Oblate Sisters strive to attain union with God by offering their lives for the holiness and support of diocesan priests and by fostering vocations to the priesthood. The sisters pray for priestly holiness and offer the joys and sorrows of their lives for the good of priests. The sisters also care for retired and convalescent priests, collaborate with them in their parish ministry, which includes teaching, directing religious education, hospital visitation, and distribution of the Eucharist to the homebound.
Any type of education is welcome and could be useful. A high school diploma is required. Candidates will be accepted between the ages of 18 and 35.
