Ministry & Service Ambassadors Program (MSA)

In its inaugural year, fall of 2024, the Ministry & Service Ambassador Program will provide young adults with the experience of living in community while gaining real life experience working on and in the sacred spaces of the Purification Heritage Center in Crawfordville, Georgia.

Built upon the six core values: radical hospitality, devotion to the blessed mother, restoration, service, historic preservation, and community Ministry and Service Ambassadors commit time to prayer and discernment while gaining real-world working experience in a historically catholic setting surrounded by 200 tranquil acres.

” The reason that I keep deciding to come back here is because the Holy Spirit is really present in this place and you can really feel the presence of the Lord on this property. It is a beautiful place to encounter Christ and find rest.”

Ministry and Service Ambassadors will spend 9 months in professional training as well as spiritual formation including hospitality, retreat logistics, nonprofit business management, liturgical planning, regenerative agriculture, and hands-on historic restoration.

This unique hands-on approach provides real-world working experience to allow matriculating ambassadors the opportunity to pursue a life of service to Christ and His people in any vocation throughout the archdiocese of Atlanta and beyond.

A second group of ambassadors will begin their programming in June of 2025. Through the generosity of an office of Mission Advancement benefactor, 8 MSA’s are fully funded for their journey through ministry and service. This program is funded purely through donations. Purification Heritage Center does not require MSA’s to raise their own funds.

Funding for programs like these and others provides growth and stability for the future of our catholic faith and an avenue for young catholic adults to pursue their vocations.
