Living in the company of our Lord Jesus

The family is the most shattered of all entities and the Enthronement of the Sacred Heart is the cure for crises in families….It is the remedy for these times we live in. Fr. Mateo Crawley-Boevey, the founder of this apostolate, was commanded by Pope (St.) Pius X to bring Christ alive in families throughout the world. Fr. Mateo’s vision fits the needs of today’s families.The Apostolate is moving in a new direction; we have a vision and this is the time! Our mission statement is still valid – a global project.
