The Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a religious congregation founded in Italy in 1894 by Mother Clelia Merloni. She was a remarkably dynamic spiritual leader who sent sisters to serve the needs of the Church in the United States and South America within a few years of the beginning of her congregation.
She led a life of amazing holiness and goodness and was Beatified by Pope Francis on Nov. 3, 2018 in Rome.
A number of sisters of Blessed Clelia’s congregation have served and currently serve in the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee:
—Sr. Elizabeth Knight served as Principal of Sacred Heart Cathedral School from 1993 to 2009.
—Sr. Margaret Kuntz is Diocesan Director of Faith Formation and has served in Pensacola since 1986. Sr. Margaret Ann Calcutta has taught in the St. John Catholic School Morning Star Program since 2012, and Sr. Kierstin has served at Pensacola Catholic High School since 1987.
The Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus are inviting you to join us at a Mass celebrating the Beatification of Blessed Clelia Merloni, with Bishop William Wack as principal celebrant, at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart on Sunday, March 31, 2019, at 1:30 p.m., followed by a reception in the Ave Maria Hall. We hope that you can join us!

We want to make sure that the parents of our younger students are aware of today’s early dismissal. This was not originally on the school calendar, but has been implemented to accommodate the Memorial Mass at 2:00 p.m. for Quinn Garrett, an eighth grade student at Sacred Heart.
Extended care will be available.
Please check your email for messages from Dyna and Mrs. Snow for more details about dismissal and the Memorial Mass.
Parents, as mentioned in the flyer sent home with students on Tuesday, we are adding text messaging capability to SchoolMessenger Communicate, the system we use now for phone calls and emails. The system will be configured to send text messages to cell phone numbers whose recipients have agreed to receive them.
Recipients can easily opt-in by simply sending “Y” (or “Yes”), via text message to 67587
If we have an SMS text phone number for you on file AND you have not already opted-in by texting “Y” to 67587, on Tuesday, January 29th, you should receive the following text from 67587 requesting you to opt-in to continue receiving important informational text messages from SHCS:
