    Our celebration of Philippine comes to a close this Sunday at the Celebration of the Feast of Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne and the Bicentennial Closing Mass in St. Louis will take place on Sunday, November 18 at 2:30 p.m. (CST). We are sharing this liturgy via live stream so our Sacred Heart family around the world may join in the celebration! A recording also will be available for 24 hours after the completion of the liturgy, on the same webpage.

    We thank all who have made the Bicentennial year so rich with prayer and learning, with exploration and truth-telling, with new understanding and new relationships, with publications and holy cards, with sculpture and Flat Philippines. Special Thanks to Kathleen Hughes, RSCJ and Bicentennial Committee for their creative energetic leadership of our celebration. The International Service Day, the class plans and the many activities across the Network proved to be an ideal way to make Philippine and the mission of the Society better known throughout the world! Thank you.
