It will start at 9:00am and will conclude at the 6:00pm anticipated Mass. Live Pure is a movement of the young that promotes and defends the culture of LIFE. This is not just a passing advocacy defined by the signs of the times, but rather, to Live Pure is our identity. Our passion to Live Pure is the root of who we are and what we do. We breathe, we move, we think and we exist to live pure.
Vision: We are a Catholic movement committed to a life of purity, leading young men and women in pursuit of life’s true meaning according to their destiny in Christ. Mission: We are prolife advocates striving for purity of mind, eyes, speech and body. We commit to share our conviction by giving young people opportunities to realize and live out the value of human dignity and fraternal relationships.
