* Pioneer Total Abstinence Association:   Pioneers: In 1898, Father Cullen founded the Pioneer Total Abstinence Association of The Sacred Heart.  Pioneers are ordinary people who :

(1) Abstain from Alcohol - to make reparation to Christ for the sins of intemperance; - to express their concern for the conversion of excessive drinkers; - to make themselves free and independent of alcohol in order to be of service to others; - to show be example that temperance, indeed total abstinence, is possible even for an Irishman! 

(2) Recite twice daily the brief Pioneer Offering: For thy greater glory and consolation O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for Thy sake to give good example to practice self-denial to make reparation to Thee for the sins of intemperance and for the conversion of excessive drinkers, I will abstain for life from all intoxicating drinks.    (3) Wear the Emblem of Christ's Heart, the symbol of the unfailing love and mercy of Christ for us.
