The Society of Priests of the Sacred Heart of Betharram (French: Prêtres du Sacré-Cœur de Jésus de Bétharram) is a Roman Catholic institute of consecrated life.

Established in Bétharram in 1832 by St. Michael Garicoits as fulfilment of a dream, the task of this congregation, dedicated to the Sacred Heart, was to evangelize the people through missions and to teach the young.[1] It received formal approval of the Pope after Garicoits' death.[1]

They live in small communities of 3-4 people in Argentina, Brazil, Central African Republic, France, Great Britain, India, Israel, Italy, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Palestine, Paraguay, Spain, Thailand and Uruguay.
