Sunday, November 18, 2018, marks the close of the Sacred Heart Family's Bicentennial celebration in the United States and Canada. In 1818, St. Rose Philippine Duchesne and four companions arrived in St. Charles and within days opened a school in a log cabin. It was the first free school west of the Mississippi River and the beginning of the Society’s mission of education in the Americas. This festive Eucharist includes the premiere celebration of the Mass in honor of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne, RSCJ, composed by Father Michael Joncas for the occasion.
A recording also will be available for 24 hours after the completion of the liturgy, on the same webpage.
