|| What is Pure in Heart? ||
Pure in Heart is an international Catholic movement of young adults who through prayer and friendship, strive together to learn, live, and share the truth, beauty, and meaning of human sexuality and to proclaim the sanctity of human life to the youth. We aim to educate, inspire, and empower the youth to faithfully live their vocations primarily through our mission talks, retreats, and prayer meetings.
Our talks are all rooted in St. John Paul II’s theology of the body and Sacred Scripture, and include a mix of faith, science, cultural references and personal witness. Our program is unmistakably Catholic. We want the next generation to know how and where to quench their thirst — and that is in the one, holy, Catholic and apostolic Church founded by Jesus Christ.
|| Who can be a missionary with Pure in Heart? ||
Pure in Heart missionaries are Catholic young adults between the ages of 18 and 35 who are passionate about our mission. You do not need to be an expert theologian or perfect speaker to be a missionary. The primary gift you can give to the kids you encounter is your love for the Truth and for Christ, and sharing that with them!
|| What is expected of a Pure in Heart Missionary? ||
A Pure in Heart missionary will be placed with a teammate of the opposite sex to give mission talks throughout the school year, December to June. The mission talks are typically on Saturday or Sunday evenings and are offered to grades 7-12. Our most common age group is Grades 9-10.
Given the nature of our work, missionaries must be willing to commit to: attend daily Mass or Adoration, pray the Rosary daily, attend at least monthly confession, and participate in the training in November.* You should be an active participant in Pure in Heart prayer meetings and community gatherings. You also should be willing to commit to growing in your knowledge of the theology of the body in your personal time. Finally, you need to love the youth and “be not afraid!” of stepping out of your comfort zone to let the Holy Spirit work through you! Just think — with your yes, the world will never be the same.
