The Society of the Sacred Heart is divided into provinces, each province usually comprising a country or related geographical areas. There is a provincial, or superior, for each province, and a provincial team. The provincial is appointed by the superior general after input from members of the province (which numbers approximately 400 members in the United States). The provincial team is appointed by the provincial and, together with her, offers guidance for the spiritual, apostolic, and professional direction of the members of the province.

The headquarters of the United States Provincial Team is currently in St. Louis, Missouri. The team sends out monthly news of the province in the newsletter update, and its various members visit different areas of the United States each year. This group also maintains close ties with the superior general of the Society and her team, called the general council. They are located in Rome, the headquarters of the whole Society.
