“Come & See” Weekend


  • To learn more about Heart’s Home and its charism and to discern if God is calling you to join Heart’s Home in mission.
  • Prospective volunteers will be given the opportunity to experience the charism from within by visiting the lonely and the sick and by sharing in the volunteers’ daily lives. Time will be given to address all practical questions and concerns.


At Heart’s Home John-Paul II in Brooklyn, NY.


From Friday 8:00 am to Sunday 3:00 pm.

If needed, sched­ules can be flex­ible.

What do I need to bring?

All bed sheets, towels, meals and written mate­rial are pro­vided. You will need casual clothes, toi­letries and a note­book. You shall also be pre­pared to find trans­porta­tion to the Heart’s Home in Brooklyn.

What will I be doing?

You will follow the daily life of the Brooklyn com­mu­nity. In the morning, you will be given talks on the three main pil­lars of our life, namely: Prayer, Community and Compassion. In the after­noon, you will accom­pany one of the mem­bers of the Brooklyn com­mu­nity in vis­iting people in the neigh­bor­hood and/or in the nursing homes. The weekend also includes a one-on-one inter­view where you will be given the oppor­tu­nity to explain your rea­sons for wanting to go on mis­sion with Heart’s Home.

What will the next steps be?

At the end of the weekend, we will let you know if we accept your appli­ca­tion as a mis­sionary.

If you are accepted, you will be given a two-week time of dis­cern­ment before informing us of your intent to commit.

If you decide to vol­un­teer with Heart’s Home, you will be in con­tact with our staff who will assist you with all prac­tical points such as spon­sors, pass­port and visa, vac­ci­na­tions, lan­guage and your sending forth mass.

You will also have to attend a two-week Orientation Program.
