rscj logo 15019 January marked the 135th anniversary of the arrival of the first Religious of the Sacred Heart in Aotearoa New Zealand, and thus the beginning of the RSCJ presence in what is now the Australia New Zealand Province, reports the Sacred Heart Circle e-newsletter.

The Province Orientation Handbook 2015 reflects this event and the Province's link with St Rose Philippine Duchesne. She took the Society of the Sacred Heart to the USA and RSCJ from the USA brought the Society to Aotearoa New Zealand. They were the first RSCJ in what is now the Australia New Zealand Province.
