Pious Associations

Confraternity of the Sacred Heart

In the past there had been several Pious Associations in the diocese: Confraternity of the Sacred Heart, Blessed Sacrament Confraternity, Rosary Confraternity. Sodality of Our Lady etc. Unfortunately, today only the Confraternity if the Sacred Heart functions in a few parishes. There main functions are:

  To foster devotion to the Sacred Heart, esp the First Friday devotion which takes the form of reparation to the Sacred  Heart

ii     They wear their Confraternity medal on such occasions

iii    They promote Hours of Adoration, enthronement of the Sacred Heart in homes

iv   The celebrate the feast of the Sacred Heart as their feast

Unfortunately the members are often elderly people and limited to very few parishes.
