The Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart is an order of the Roman Catholic Church, founded in France in 1874. In 1908, five Sisters arrived in Darwin and undertook missionary work at Bathurst Island Mission. Sisters from the order were involved in the running of many Catholic Missions, schools and leprosariums.
