Scope and content

The Societe des Missionnaires du Sacre-Coeur was founded at Issoudun, France, on 8 December 1854, by Fr Jules Chevalier. Headquarters of the mission have been in Rome since 1905. The order sent missionaries to New Guinea in 1881 and established missions in the Marshall Islands in 1891 and in the Gilbert Islands in 1897. It is still active in Papua New Guinea and Kiribati, but withdrew from the Marshalls after World War I. Nauru, which had formerly come under the Vicariate of the Marshall Islands was then made part of the Gilbert Islands Vicariate. The journal contains only occasional items of Pacific interest before the beginning of the second series in December 1886. A third series begins in 1910. Issued monthly, but irregular during World War II. For indexes to items of Pacific interest see Langdon, R. (ed) The PMB book of Pacific indexes (Canberra: PMB, 1988).:
