The Servant of God, Mother M.Teresa Nuzzo, founded the Congregation “Daughters of the Sacred Heart’’ in 1903. Together with other young ladies she taught catechism in schools and in some parishes.It was one of the main aims of the Foundress to impart education to children based on love and truth. Today the Sisters have a Kindergarten School in Ħamrun and a Primary School at Marsa. They have a children’s Home at Żurrieq and a Day Centre for children in Żejtun and Mellieħa. They also take active part in teaching catechism, academic and technical subjects to the children.
Since its foundation, the Congregation has notably grown in number and apostolic work. It has Convents in Malta, India, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Philippines Rome and in U.S.A. The Sisters carry out their mission in various apostolic fields especially in schools, teaching Catechism in the parishes, rendering services to the local churches, running Day Care Centres and orphanages.
In 1988 the Congregation was approved as a Congregation of Pontifical Right. In the General Chapter of 1995, Malta and India were established as Provinces and Kenya as a Region.
