The Parish is under the pastoral care of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart. We are called the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus – missionaries of God’s love revealed in the human heart of Christ. For many we are perhaps better known by our initials, MSC. These come from our name in Latin: Missionarii Sacratissimi Cordis. We are part of an international congregation of vowed male Religious founded in 1854 by Jules Chevalier, a young French priest.
Our Founder saw the Heart of Christ as the source of God’s saving love for the whole world. Our mission is to make that compassionate love known everywhere and to everyone, without conditions.

Killinarden Parish will continue to be a centre which recognises, proclaims and preserves our gospel values . It will expand and improve all activities to advance the education of our children; to continue work in evangelisation, liturgy, music, and in efforts toward the achievement of a spiritual, economic and social development of all people. This is our call.
