The Stella Maris Province of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus covers a wide geographic area. The Stella Maris Province, aptly named from the Latin, meaning Star of the Sea, spans oceans and continents. The Province is as varied in its ministries as it is geographically. In the Stella Maris Province the Missionary Sisters sponsor educational, healthcare, eldercare and spiritual ministries. Australia, and the United States form one of the international/intercultural provinces of the world. The region of Central America will soon be part of a new canonical entity.
Our apostolic priorities are women, children, frail elders and immigrants – these are our particular areas of ministerial outreach. Read more about our apostolic priorities here.
