Cor Jesu Academy

Faith

Vibrant, Catholic faith surrounds the Cor Jesu community, as students and faculty alike come together to witness and experience Christ’s love. Taught in the Sacred Heart of Jesus’ charism and tradition for academic excellence, Cor Jesu students discover the tools needed to live a life of faith, love and service.

Guiding Hearts

Much of our faith identity stems from the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, who live and work on campus and pour love and support into each and every student.

Devoted Prayer

Each day at Cor Jesu begins and ends with thoughtful prayer as students develop a routine dialogue with God and create an open door from which they may explore their faith journey.

Theology Study

Cor Jesu's Theology Department guides students through the teachings of Christ and the traditions of the Catholic faith, giving them the strength to live as insightful, impassioned Christians.

First Friday Liturgies

Both the 12 Apostles and the 12 Promises of the Sacred Heart made to St. Margaret Mary Alocoque are represented in the twelve rays of Cor Jesu's logo. In honor of this shared tradition, we celebrate all-school liturgies on the first Friday of every month.

Promises of the Sacred Heart

  1. I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.
  2. I will give peace in their families.
  3. I will console them in all their troubles.
  4. They shall find in my Heart an assured refuge during life and especially at the hour of death.
  5. I will pour abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
  6. Sinners shall find in my Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
  7. Tepid souls shall become fervent.
  8. Fervent souls shall speedily rise to great perfection.
  9. I will bless the homes in which the image of My Sacred Heart shall be exposed and honored.
  10. I will give to priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts.
  11. Those who propagate this devotion shall have their name written in My Heart, and it shall never be effaced.
  12. The all-powerful love of My Heart will grant to all those who shall receive Communion on the First Friday of nine consecutive months the grace of final repentance; they shall not die under My displeasure, nor without receiving their Sacraments; My Heart shall be their assured refuge at that last hour.
