After Mission

Once the mis­sion is over, vol­un­teers are invited to spend the first days of their return at the Blessed John-Paul II Brooklyn house. This can be a helpful tran­si­tional stage in returning to daily life in the United States.

Heart’s Home also wishes to con­tinue its rela­tion­ship with past vol­un­teers by orga­nizing an annual alumni weekend in Brooklyn. This weekend is engi­neered to pro­mote the con­tin­u­a­tion of com­pas­sionate living in what­ever state of life former vol­un­teers find them­selves. The expe­ri­ence of once again being among fellow mem­bers of the Heart’s Home family allows the alumni to share sto­ries and enjoy com­mu­nion with one another.

For those who hear a calling to a more sub­stan­tial com­mit­ment, mem­ber­ship in the St Maximilian Kolbe Fraternity is an option. This renew­able three-year com­mit­ment is a public pro­fes­sion of one’s desire to con­tinue living the charism of com­pas­sion in a more con­crete way. Members of the Fraternity are expected to pray a daily rosary, con­se­crate existing respon­si­bil­i­ties to the com­pas­sionate ser­vice of God and con­tribute to the con­tinued growth of Heart’s Home. Membership, how­ever, is not restricted to former vol­un­teers but open to all those who express an interest.
