LAY Missionaries of the Sacred Heart
There is a name that makes us one family - "Chevalier Family." This family is made up of four groups - MSC, DOLSH (OLSH Sisters), MSC Sisters and the Lay MSCs.
Members of the Lay MSCs in Fiji (St Agnes Parish) presented before the Chapter their life, work, vision and mission, challenges, strengths, etc. Although they are few they have shown how courageous they are in carrying out the same Charism and Spirituality entrusted to them. The members of the Chapter expressed their gratitude and assured them of their full support and prayers. "You are not working for us, you are working with us. You are part of our family," was one of the reactions from the members of the Chapter.
