There is no condom for your heart. So says a team of young Irish Catholics who are on a mission to encourage restraint and abstinence amongst our youth.

  • Go To

Pure In Heart began in Ireland but has spread its messages to other countries including the UK, US and Germany. Its message is to 'promote the true meaning and beauty of human sexuality through practising the virtue of chastity'.

The group goes around to secondary schools and gives lessons on sexual restraint and abstinence. The members encourage young people to chose pre-marital chastity instead of contraception.
