Catholic Tradition revival in Russia since 2010!

Russian towns where we've celebrated
the Traditional Latin Mass:

Welcome to the
Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

We have developed this site for 10 years, until 2020. Due to a change in our principled position, we created a new website, on which all relevant information is published. The website remains as an archive of our activities during the first 10 years of the existence of the Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Since the destruction of Catholic communities by the Communists in the 30s, the Traditional Mass in the Roman Rite has lost all its followers in Russia.

But now, 80 years later the situation has changed.

In 2010, certain Russian Catholics united and formed a lay organization known as the “Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus”. The Society was founded in the city of Moscow. Two years later, various Catholics of Kursk founded the first affiliate chapter of the Society.

The Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus aims to uphold and safeguard the traditional Catholic Teaching, according to which the Holy Mass is a bloodless, mystical re-presentation of the Sacrifice of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on Golgotha. This important truth of the Catholic Church has continued for hundreds of years through the practice of the Traditional Rite.

    Further aims of the Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

    The Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus – Catholic lay association in support of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum (from there onward, the Society), from the very day of its foundation, Feast of All Saints, the 1st of November, 2010, has been organizing Holy Traditional Latin Masses according to the 1962 edition of the Roman Missal, which were offered in the basement chapel of the Moscow Immaculate Conception Cathedral. On Sundays and Holy Days the actual attendance would amount to around 50 persons. Another endeavors of the Society were missionary trips across Russian cities in order to bring the Mass of Ages to the people of Russia and educate them on the matters pertaining to it and the Catholic Tradition, as well as organization of recollections and spiritual exercises in the Moscow Cathedral.

    Across the span of the last 10 years the Society would faithfully follow the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church as well as directions of Benedict XVI’s Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum.

    We thank God for those years.

    The last Mass organized by the Society and offered according to the 1962 Roman Missal in the Moscow Cathedral took place on the 1st of November, 2020.
