The spirituality of the association is based on prayer, self denial and reparation.
Prayer for those who are suffering because of their own or others excess consumption of alcohol; and total abstinence as self denial and for the pain and damage done by excess use of alcohol.
In their devotion to the Sacred Heart Pioneers strive to love unconditionally as Jesus does, learn to accept whatever crosses come their way, and reduce egotistical needs so that they can enter into closed communion with the Heart of Christ.
The Pioneer by abstaining from alcohol, which like all of God’s gifts should not be abused, is forgoing one of life’s pleasures and therefore dying to self for the greater good.
