who we are

Pure Heart Philippines is a movement that provides a community for young people to grow in their faith and respond to God's call for our life.

Inspired by the life and Theology of St. John Paul II, Pure Heart seeks to form the whole person - body, mind, and spirit - to become Christ-centered, pure of heart, joy-filled agents of change, and to live the abundant life God created us for.

We then go out to share this way of life with as many young people as we can.

what we do

Pure Heart forms its members in four main ways:

  1. COMMUNITY - Pure Heart members become a true family, sharing our struggles and joys together and supporting each other in our growth in holiness.

  2. FORMATION - Pure Heart forms its members through teachings in theology, philosophy, and human formation to become confident leaders in their faith and in their lives.

  3. PRAYER/SACRAMENTS- The source of everything we do is Jesus. We encounter Him most fully in prayer and the sacraments.

  4. MISSION - Jesus sends us to spread His Love and Truth to the ends of the earth! Pure Heart members go to schools, universities, and various organizations to speak to youth about God's plan for their sexuality and their lives.

Pure Heart Philippines began in Cebu City in 2014, but our roots go back to 2008. Corazón Puro, the mother organization of Pure Heart, had its beginnings in New York City, and has since spread to many other countries, including the Philippines.

Founded by Fr. Agustino Torres, CFR and Odet Bisono, Corazón Puro awakens and accompanies leaders in areas of great need. Inspired by the life and theology of St. John Paul II, these leaders are equipped to become Christ-centered, pure of heart, joy-filled agents of change. They are sent out to form young people to know the dignity of their sexuality and God's plan for their life, in order to build up a culture of life and a civilization of love.

 

In 2014, Bulay Miñano, a member of Corazón Puro, came to Cebu City to serve with the Apostolic Sisters of St. John. Seeing that the youth had no resources to answer their questions about love and sexuality, she decided to begin Pure Heart Philippines.

 

our growth

We have been steadily growing since our inception in 2014. From our small beginnings, we are encountering more and more young people every year:
