The Societas Pura Corda is very greatful and happy to welcome so many visitors from all over the world to our website.
All together we speak so many different languages, but there is one language that unites us, the language of the gospel.
United in Christ as children of God we are one big family. With the light and love of Christ in our hearts we are called to spread that light all over the world. Especially in these dark times the world needs to be lighten up.
The Societas Pura Corda is founded in the Netherlands (the worlds most secularisated country) to help bring God back to the people's hearts and to deepen the faith of them who know Jesus already but wish to make their relation with Him stronger. We do so by organising different activities. From lectures, meetings, (silent) retraites to providing christian social help (works of mercy) to those in need. In other words: living our faith according to the gospel.
Our basics is in the Netherlands and the dutch speaking part of Belgium, but we go wherever the Lord wants us to be. Our teachings are stricktly based on the Holy Scripture, the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and the teachings and spiritual testaments of many saints. We are a community of lay people and religious and are guided by priests. Our co-founder is the reverend father dr. Jan Bots SJ.
