Before their departure on Mission, the future Missionary will organize and attend a Sending-forth mass.
During this celebration:
- The Missionary is officially sent on Mission by a representative of Heart’s Home. He or she commits to devote themself fully to the Mission God gave him or her within a Heart’s Home community.
- The Heart’s Home representative gives the Missionary a rosary underlining the importance of prayer to the Virgin Mary. A heart is engraved on the wooden cross of the rosary remind the Missonary the very essense of his or her life: “Be a Heart, nothing but an entire Heart” (Maurice Zundel).
The date and time of the Sending-forth mass is decided with the Missionary and the Heart’s Home staff during the preparation of their Mission.
