Welcome to the official website of the Community of the Pure Hearts and Pura Corda Foundation.
On this site we will tell you all about our Community and Foundation.
We are working on a complete english translation of our website but until that is realised we will give you a short introduction on this page.
The Community of the Pure Hearts and Pura Corda Foundation are founded the beginning of 2019 by the rev. fr.dr. J. Bots SJ and Michael and Maggie Schoenmakers by the purpose of (re)evangelisation and (re)introduction and deeping the Catholic faith in the first place the Netherlands and Belgium, but also all places where God wants us to be active.
We try to achieve this by organising lots of activities and projects. The Community of the Pure Hearts is more directed on the Catholic faith and evangelisation. Pura Corda foundation is more directed to gather and unite all christians or people who have the intention to live according the christian faith. Everybody who has the intention to live a life according to the christian faith and wish to get the gift of a pure heart is very welcome, but we have a target audience of especially: youth, (young) families, (lonely) elderly, (christian) refugees.
We are strictly following the teachings of the (catholic) Church and the teachings of the holy Scripture and the teachings of a lot of saints like; St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Paul, St. Faustina, St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Augustine, St.Thomas etc. Beside that our guide on the way to the faith is Mary. Because our holy Mother is the most sure way to unite yourself in love with Jesus Christ, our Lord. One of our priorities is the 'internal prayer' our closest connection with God deep inside us. That's why if we want to listen to what our Lord wants to say to us, we need to disconnect ourself from all what can disturb.
We have priests who guide us and help us on the right way of our faith, who participate in our activities. Aswell as bishops approval. We also want to reach out to people through our youtube-channel: Zuivere Harten NL. Stichting Pura Corda. Now we have only dutch spoken videos on it, but we are also planning recording english spoken videos.
As community and foundation we are working together with international communties in for example Belgium, Poland and Italy, but we very much wish to extent our international network. If you are in a community or prayer-group or you want us to connect, please let us know and we will be in contact.
We are very happy and greatful that the amount of international visitors to our website daily increases.
