Newly Vowed Missioners
At the recent General Synod of the Missionary Society of Saint John (Oct 16-19), six individuals committed their lives and made vows to proclaim the Good News that “God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, not counting man’s sins against them” (2 Cor. 5:19) and to live that Gospel in their daily lives.
They were joyfully welcomed as brother and sister missioners of the MSJ.
"I, ________________, in the presence of God and the Holy and Undivided Trinity, the Ever-Blessed Virgin Mary, St. John the Evangelist, all the saints, and this company here present, do vow my life and my service to Christ within the calling and charism of the Missionary Society of St. John the Evangelist. Amen."
