M.S.C.  KOREA    REGION    Missionaries of the Sacred Heart 
(Web page in Korean Language is available. Please open:)  http://user.chollian.net/~msck/

The M.S.C. congregation started the mission in South Korea on February 17, 1985 with the arrival of Fr. Pedro C. Arguillas and shortly after, of Fr. Danilo F. Ceniza. A year later, Fr. Raymond T. Sabio arrived and in 1988, Fr. Michael Paradela. After several years of formation, first to be ordained were Fr. Joseph Kim, MSC and Fr. John Park, MSC on Feb. 2, 1991.
With the subsequent perpetual professions and sacerdotal ordinations of the Korean Members, the Korean MSC Section became a Region on April 29, 1999. They are present in Seoul, Inchon, and Pusan.

Fr. Jules Chevalier founded the M.S.C. congregation to proclaim the boundless LOVE of God in the face of the serious ills of the world: egoism, selfishness and indifference. He laid the foundation on Dec. 8, 1854 in Issoudun, France.
We see in the Sacred Heart of Jesus an emergence of a powerful "Spirituality of the Heart" which can effectively generate a true conversion and renewal in the hearts of those who have grown cold in their faith. 
In the light of this, in our various kinds of apostolate in Korea which include the following: formation work, giving of retreats, spiritual direction, parish work, promotion of justice, peace and unification, hospital chaplaincy, chaplaincy to foreign workers, and chaplaincy to seafarers, we strive to proclaim the unfathomable Love of God in and through the Sacred Heart, inviting everyone to respond wholeheartedly to God's call in faith and in love.

We share our Charism and Spirituality of the Heart with the Laity. Through a period of formation, the members become our MSC ASSOCIATES. We consider them our family members and partners in our apostolate. There are 20 members with Perpetual Promise; and 45 with First Promise.  They hold a monthly meeting under the guidance of Fr. John Hwang, MSC.
We earnestly request you, our visitors to include us and our MSC Associates in your prayers that our MSC Family will continue to grow and be of service to the local Church in Korea, and later on, also to the Church in the North-east Asia area.
Our challenging motto and inspiring prayer, given by Fr. Founder is:  May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be loved everywhere, now and forever. Amen.
