Heart of Virtue Ministry


The objective of the Heart of Virtue ministry is to help St. William members and families fulfill their vocation to chastity (CC 2337) by answering the call of our bishops:

The Church as a field hospital is called to proclaim the truth of the human person in love, to protect people—especially children—from pornography, and to provide the Lord’s mercy and healing for those wounded by pornography.

Create in Me a Clean Heart, A Pastoral Response to Pornography, USCCB

The primary ways that the society intends to perform this mission is by providing support and fellowship groups as well as events focused on education and awareness.

Monthly Meetings

All men of the parish that are 18 years and older are invited to attend our monthly support meetings which take place every 3rd Friday from 6 to 7 AM in the St. Francis Room of the Parish Activity Center. This meeting is an opportunity to fellowship with other men who are attempting to live chaste lives. We discuss prayer, devotions, as practical techniques to overcome sins against chastity.


The Heart of Virtue Ministry will be presenting on topics such as how to talk to your kids about pornography. Check the bulletin for any upcoming presentations. If you have any questions about this, please call Gerardo Garcia at (956) 645-7931 or email
