The Association Mondiale des Anciennes et Anciens du Sacré-Coeur is a unique worldwide and international organization of Sacred Heart alumnae and alumni who share the privilege of receiving an education based on the love of God and of one another.

AMASC is the body that unites tens of thousands of alumnae and alumni as part of an international family.

AMASC was formed in 1960 in Brussels at the request of Reverend Mother General de Valon. Reverend Mother de Valon saw an important and vital role the alumnae and alumni could play in fostering the work and spirit of the Society of the Sacred Heart
