The Work Apostleship Holy Hearts of Jesus and of Mary was born in Pescara, thanks to volunteers, with the objective to broadcast the devoutness to the Holy Hearts of Jesus and of Mary through the religious practice of the "first nine Fridays and the first five Saturdays".
This lay association circulates in Italy, in Europe and all over the World, by ecclesiastical approval; every follower makes his contribution. We send, free of charge, all our printed material (pictures, Il Notiziario, our newspaper) to dioceses, parishes, religious institutions and to all other people.
These are Work Apostleships activities in the last years:
OP.A. for PRINTS
OP.A. for SOLIDARITY
OP.A. for MISSIONS
OP.A. for APOSTOLATE
All the followers are steered by the father Raffaele Salerno
O.M.I. and father Fulvio Di Fulvio: they are all volunteers, lays, they want to
broadcast the devoutness to the Holy Hearts of Jesus and of mary, and they want to help
poorest people for their needs.
With all those qualifications the activity of this foundation is getting better. At first it was a small group, now it is growing up and the new followers are young people above all. Some of them try to give an answer for the main questions concerning their life; others want to find a deeper faith or a better manner to serve God and the neighbour.
Not all young people are lucky: so our foundation is a centre of welcome too, where young people can find everything they need.
Besides dinamism of our followers, we can rely on the prayers of our Holy Father Jean Paul II who encourages our foundation to continue its activity; also the Archibishop of Pescara, Francesco Cuccarese, and his vicar, Vincenzo Amadio, like our activity. In Rome there was a meeting with Mother Teresa who wanted to know our organizers to thank them for the pictures and to estimate the value of our job. On 13th August 1996 we have gone to Missionary youth service (SER.MI.G.) in Turin, at Arsenal of peace, where Ernesto Olivero welcomed us and we gave him 30.000 pictures of Holy Hearts, translated into 14 languages.
