The purpose of AASH is to foster a spirit of unity and ongoing communication among alumnae and alumni and their respective associations throughout this nation and the world. AASH commits itself to nurturing in its members dedication to faith development, intellectual values, respect for personal integrity, community and social service, and the unique philosophy of life that is rooted in the Christian vision of St. Madeleine Sophie Barat.

World Association of Alumnae and Alumni of the Sacred Heart (AMASC)

Association Mondiale des Anciennes et Anciens du Sacré-Coeur (AMASC) is a unique worldwide organization of alumnae and alumni who share the privilege of receiving an education based on the love of God and of one another.

This education has fostered, within the receivers, respect for the uniqueness of each individual with different gifts and talents, the realization of the responsibility to develop and use these talents for the benefit of all, and a strong sense of social justice, which impels to action. The aims of the World Association are:
  • to be at the service of humanity for the construction of a just and cohesive society, with an increased awareness of its social responsibility, and a commitment to faith lived in both a personal and community dimension;
  • to create and maintain friendship and solidarity among all the National Federations and Associations so as to bring about true international collaboration;
  • to cooperate actively and effectively with the Society of the Sacred Heart in its mission and ministries;
  • to have an effective voice in the international organizations to which AMASC belongs, with a constant concern for discernment and open-mindedness.
The International Association of Alumnae and Alumni of Sacred Heart meets every four years in a World Congress. XVI AMASC World Congress will be held in 2018 in Mérida, Yucatán MEXICO. We will share further details as we get closer to the date.

  • Philippine's Journey Continues Through Us

    Society of the Sacred Heart, United States-Canada Province
    For months, while grappling with the uncertainty and physical isolation caused by the pandemic, we have sought to respond as one body acting in hope while drawing upon the spirituality of the Sacred Heart. We continue to witness acts of violence which dehumanize our sisters and brothers of color. The cries of young and old for justice echo the hopes of all of us who aspire to live the attitudes of Christ’s Heart.

    We anticipate Philippine’s Feast and, in truth, we experience discomfort. We admire Philippine as a pioneer, an educator, a vowed religious, and we know she also participated and was complicit in the evil of enslavement. How do we approach this feast, knowing that this “saint” still engaged in sinful prejudices and actions, which still cause suffering today? What might we learn from Philippine in order to work more effectively for racial justice and reconciliation?

    Convinced that this reflection on Philippine is impossible without the guidance of the Spirit, we invite you to join us in a week of prayer and reflection. In the spirit of oneness with our God, and with one another, let us consider how we, the recipients of Philippine’s legacy, might continue her mission in a spirit of humility. Acknowledging Philippine’s humanity calls us to acknowledge our own. Recognizing and working to overcome our limitations, trusting fully in the Spirit dwelling deep within our hearts, let us continue to travel to new frontiers and to choose love, always.
