At St. Patricks LaRochelle -The Sacred Heart Sodality has been in existence for 50 years. It has a membership of about 20 members. The chair person is Jabulile Nxumalo
The beginning of the Sacred Heart in South Africa date back to 1895 in the Marianhill Diocese. The wish of the Sacred Hearth Sodality is to honour the love and compassion of the Heart of Christ in a special way through a life of worship and service.
The first Friday devotions are to specially recognize the Sacred Heart of Jesus and through it, offer reparations for sins in the visions of Christ.
The Sacred Heart charity work is to pray and visit the sick. They also fulfil their obligation to pay a certain amount of stipend to the priest every month.
