Congregation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Betharram
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. It received formal approval of the Pope after Garicoits' death.
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.
