Biography

THE MISSION OF THE CULTURE PROJECT

A group of young people from around the country have felt called to embark on a journey in the footsteps of John Paul II. It is time to forge something for young people by young people. Having tried our culture and found it wanting, young men and women are beginning to stand against the throw-away culture that views the human person as dispensable. Today, young people are rising to uphold the dignity and potential of every human person, especially in regard to our sexuality. This is the mission of The Culture Project.

The Culture Project is a missionary organization (comprised of recent college graduates in their early twenties) who are dedicated to restoring today’s youth culture. The shocking prevalence of a culture filled with self-harm, eating disorders, pornography addiction, sexting, hook-ups, bullying, identity crisis, abortion, teen suicide – all cry out to the need for the mission.

Today’s youth culture is quickly becoming a wasteland. Sexting (the act of sending sexually suggestive photos via mobile phone) has become a widespread epidemic for youth across the country. Children are not protected because they attend Catholic schools. The advent of technology has made accessibility to adult content easy. Children as early as the fourth grade are engaging in sexting. The average age for a child to be exposed to pornography is 8 years old.  Children don’t necessarily hear the message of chastity within their school teachings, even at Catholic schools. Today’s youth culture is aching for light within an overwhelming and widespread darkness. The Culture Project is that light. Today, more than ever, young people long to know there is more to the human story. In any given community, we don’t have to look far to see young people suffering the effects of a deep, underlying problem: they don’t know who they are and what they’re made for. The Culture Project is the light that helps youths navigate the rights and wrongs of today’s confusing culture.

The Culture Project’s young mission teams serve local communities delivering a series of impactful presentations and ongoing encounters to middle school and high school students (grades 6-12), parishes, youth groups, conferences and other youth settings about living a life of virtue. They proclaim the messages of human dignity and sexual integrity to other young people, inspiring the culture of today to be ignited by these messages of truth, goodness, and beauty. They are truly modern-day role models in a world absent of young heroes or examples of greatness.

Headquartered in Wynnewood, PA, The Culture Project has full-time mission teams serving the archdiocese in the cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toledo and Cleveland. The organization intends to build additional teams to expand their reach and impact across the country. Missionaries make a minimum commitment of one year to enter into a program in which they themselves live and pray in community, receive formation and are sent out on mission nationally and internationally. Every year, the organization receives applicants from across the country vying to serve as Culture Project missionaries. Selecting the right people is no small feat and their in-house recruitment team is dedicated to hiring and retaining the best young men and women. It is an immense responsibility to serve as a Culture Project missionary: they are leaders, role models, influencers and brothers and sisters in Christ.  Missionaries are carefully recruited and selected. The total formation of the person is key to cultural restoration.

Since their inception in 2014, they have encountered over 150,000 youth in nearly 1000 schools and parishes within 54 dioceses across the country. Their vision is a culture of virtue restored, one person at a time. The results of their work and impact speaks for itself, and as a result, many youth are turning away from the emptiness of a loveless culture, embracing instead lives of richness, integrity and authentic feelings. These young, millennial missionaries make a difference every day in the lives of the youth they encounter.

The Culture Project International is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that relies on private donations. To learn more about the mission visit https://thecultureproject.org or contact Julie Pesusich, Director of Development at jpesusich@thecultureproject.org.

Biography

The Daughters of St. Paul (U.S. and English-Speaking Canada province) are a congregation of women religious evangelizing in 54 countries and territories, both with the media of communication and within the culture of communication generated by these media.

Their founders, Blessed James Alberione, SSP, and Venerable Thecla Merlo, FSP, recognized how the media were dramatically changing the ways that human beings learned, built community, and even understood themselves, their world, and their God. They pioneered a lived proclamation of the Gospel within this constantly evolving culture and passed their heritage on to a family of ten Pauline congregations and associations with their diverse, yet collaborative, pastoral missions.

The sisters and their lay co-workers serve in 14 cities of the U.S., where they operate Pauline Books & Media (PBM) Centers. There they also conduct various forms of outreach and offer media-related services primarily in English or Spanish. Special services include Paulinas, a Spanish distribution center in Miami, and the Pauline Center for Media Studies in Culver City, CA (Los Angeles). They own and operate the PBM publishing house in Boston. In Canada, they evangelize through a PBM Centre and their Canadian distribution house in Toronto, Ontario.

Houses of formation are located in St. Louis (postulancy) and Boston (novitiate). The offices of the provincial government and the community’s infirmary are also situated in Boston.
