Because the basic thrust of the Chevalier Institute is supporting adult lay faith formation in the Chevalier family’s Spirituality of the Heart, it is obvious that most of our work is with lay people.

The exciting thing about this work is that we have recognised that there are thousands of people who share the same basic spirit, and many are on the same mission as the professed MSC priests and brothers viz. to spread the good news of God’s love shown to us in the compassionate heart of Jesus. There is a very real movement amongst the people of the world to live a spirituality of the heart.

We recognise that heart spirituality is a gift of the Spirit to the whole church and whilst over the last 150 years the MSC and sister congregations have been one of the primary means by which this spirituality has been preserved and fostered we can see that the Spirit has gifted many lay people with the same charism. The professed religious do not have a monopoly on the charism. We accept the mutuality of the lay and professed expressions of the charism.

Furthermore, we remember that Jules Chevalier had as his original vision a movement of three groups, with one group being lay people who are called to be Missionaries of the Sacred Heart in the world.

Anyone who believes in the love of God for them personally, and wants to share that vision with like minded people and spread it to others is very much a missionary of the Heart of God.

The Chevalier family contains thousands of people committed to helping make God’s love better known and appreciated.
