New York Goretti Group

2013 Dec Roundtable Discussion on CAER media_edited

Welcome to the Staten Island Goretti Group Chapter!
We believe living the virtue of chastity according to our state in life allows us the freedom to become who God created us to be as either male or female and find authentic love and real happiness.  We invite you to join us for prayer and community as we continue to work to build a culture of life and love!

“The Goretti Group is much needed on Staten Island to help fortify young people in our commitment to pursue purity and spread the life-giving message and virtue of chastity to ALL in our community.  The spiritual battle is great, especially on Staten Island, where the devastation caused by impurity has led to two very public suicides of young girls in the past two years.  We hope to form spiritual warriors for the cause of purity in our community. We are excited to have the full support of the Young Adult Director and Chastity Coordinator for the Archdiocese of New York.  The Holy Spirit is at work and now is our opportunity to have a Goretti Group chapter in our diocese!”

-Debbie Sucich, New York Goretti Group Chapter Coordinator

Goretti Mass
Come and join us the first Friday of every month for Mass, Adoration, Confession, Praise and Worship, and Fellowship. Celebrated in honor of our patron saint, St. Maria Goretti, we come together every month as a community to support each other in our commitment to purity, be nourished by the sacraments, pray for our friends and loved ones, and hear a great chastity talk by one of our local speakers. All are welcome!

The New York Goretti Group Chapter celebrated it’s 3rd Anniversary on St. Maria Goretti’s Feast Day, July 6, 2016 with one of our biggest supporters, Bishop Peter J. Byrne. We had a year of beautiful talks beginning with international speaker, author Dawn Eden presenting about her book titled, Healing Sexual Wounds with the help of the Saints.  We also had speakers from Pure of Heart, Corazon Puro and FOCUS missionaries as we continued our Theology of the Body Freedom to Love DVD Series. In October we co-hosted our first Goretti Group retreat day titled the Law of the Gift.  We are excited about our upcoming events for year four!
