The Missionaries of the Sacred Heart are an international order of Brothers and Priests within the Catholic Church. It was founded in 1854 in France by Abbé Jules Chevalier. The order first came to Sydney from France in 1885 and to Queensland in 1927. Priests from the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart ran the Hammond Island Mission Orphanage, St Henry's Roman Catholic Asylum and Cooyar Mission.
