A new chapter opened in the history of the Daughters of the Sacred Heart. A long-awaited dream of entering the mission land of Wales came into reality. Mother General Sr Pauline Farrugia, and Srs Jacqueline and mini reached the promised land on 6th June 2017.

As we were heading towards our sweet home the lush green plains and the lawn hillocks with their grandeur appearance welcomed us joyfully. The captivating view of Wales on either side of the road left us wonderstruck and spellbound. We reached our destination at 7.30 p.m. On the hills of Swansea stands the huge edifice Sacred Heart Parish.
We were officially welcomed to the diocese by Most.Rev.Thomas Mathew Burns on 23rd June on the feast day of the Sacred Heart. The bishop blessed our house on the same day and welcomed us with the full support to the diocese. During the feast day mass, we renewed our vows and made our commitment to serve the people of the parish in the presence of the entire congregation. It was a grace filled moment. We were being welcomed throughout the week in each Eucharistic Celebration. Almost everyday prayers for the Daughters of the Sacred Heart is raised at the altar. The picture of our dear foundress is placed in the church for the people to seek her intercession for their various needs. On First Friday, the prayer to Mother Foundress is said in the church.
