Welcome to our website
Welcome to the home of the Missionary Catechists of the Sacred Heart (MCSH) in the Web!
The MCSH is a religious institute of women of Diocesan Right founded in the old Diocese of Lipa, the Philippines on May 1, 1923 by Bishop Alfredo Verzosa, the first Filipino Bishop of Lipa and Madre Laura Mendoza, a Lipeña.
As consecrated women in the Roman Catholic Church, we seek to follow Christ, and aspire to always be like Him - poor, chaste and obedient through our life of community and prayer, and the various apostolates that we perform. We draw our strength from the Compassionate Heart of Christ and from the inspiration of our founders.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus burning with compassion for humanity and the prompting of the Holy Spirit urge us to respond to the call of the Local Church to go wherever and whenever we are sent.
Please feel free to browse through the pages of this website to learn more about us.
Thank you so much for visiting. God bless!

Prayer for Vocations
Pope Benedict XVI
O Father, raise up among Christians abundant and holy vocations to the priesthood, who keep the faith alive and guard the blessed memory of Your Son Jesus through the preaching of His word and the administration of the sacraments, with which You continually renew Your faithful.
Grant us holy ministers of Your altar, who are careful and fervent guardians of the Eucharist, the sacrament of the supreme gift of Christ for the redemption of the world.
Call ministers of Your mercy, who, through the sacrament of Reconciliation, spread the joy of Your forgiveness.
Grant, O Father, that the Church may welcome with joy the numerous inspirations of the Spirit of Your Son and, docile to His teachings, may she care for vocations to the ministerial priesthood and to the consecrated life.
Sustain the bishops, priests and deacons, consecrated men and women, and all the baptised in Christ, so that they may faithfully fulfill their mission at the service of the Gospel. This we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
