Welcome to 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.
My name is Gregor Huber and I am President and founding member of the “Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus”, a Society founded on the initiative of local Moscow Catholics on All Saints’ Day, 2010.
I hail originally from Bühl, Germany (near Baden-Baden), but have been living and working in Moscow since 2004. It was here in Moscow, in the year 2008, that I first became acquainted with the Traditional Roman Rite of the Mass.
As a practising Roman Catholic my reaction to this first “encounter” with the Traditional Rite was twofold: firstly, I became aware that this Liturgy offers to God the proper honor due to Him and secondly, that this Liturgy encapsulates within it the unabridged expression of our Catholic Faith.
My second reaction was both surprise and disappointment that this Sacred Liturgy, the traditional Holy Sacrifice of Mass is still subject to so much criticism (especially within the Church). This was for me impossible to understand and seemed quite wrong and even sinful!
The founding of the Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus was thus a logical and natural step towards the restoration of Tradition in Russia. The Society is sustaining and building up the Traditional Latin Mass communities in Russia.
Please support our work! We pray for all our benefactors at Holy Mass.
Thank you very much.
A Cruce Salus!
Gregor Huber, Moscow

Annual Visit of 2015: Time for the Eternal: Traditional Latin Masses in Tver and PermRead more
For its annual visit in 2015, the Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus dedicated a lot of time to plan. The preparation itself appeared to be quite expensive, since we were scheduled to visit two cities at once. However, since the visit involved the honor of Our Lord in this land, we spared no expense. And why would we settle for the less? After all, one day or another, all of us will bear responsibility for how we have served the God in our life.
