***A Proposed Charism which will emerge as part of the Our Lady of Purity Ministry in the CAMM/CCMM
While virgin males cannot receive the Rite of Consecration of Virgins, the Papal document Provida Mater, which governs secular
institutes, covers consecration for others. Therefore, this proposed charism will be a secular institute.
Men practicing "Second Virginity" would make a vow of perpetual chastity.
Priests -- diocesan and order -- would be welcome, as well. They would require their bishop's or superior's permission,
as this would be along the lines of a third order. The consecration of one's virginity to the Lord is different from commitments/vows
In the meantime, for support, please consult this list of patron saints for unmarried men:

Living together under one roof, or in their own homes, depending on their responsibilities, these men will be a witness to
society that "virgin" is not a dirty word. The charism has been placed in the CAMM/CCMM Education Division because
schools are one place where this example is needed.
Anyone interested is required to become a member of CAMM first, and the Ministry of Our Lady of Purity.
