Dear Lay Missionary of the Gospel of
I pray this letter finds you experiencing a Holy Lent!
Special thanks to those who responded to my last email
reflection on the Theology of the Face. If you
have not had the opportunity to read it yet, you may do so at
www.priestsforlife.org/articles/facetoface.htm. The practical
application of this mystery offers a beautiful and sacred way of
promoting the Gospel of Life. Let's share further about this
reflection on our MEV-Online Community: The site to register may
be found at http://pfl-mev.org/user/CreateUser.aspx. The address
for the Community site is www.pfl-mev.org.
As I mentioned in the email video, the Inquirer Assessment Form,
a vital role in advancing our progress as Lay Missionaries. I
would like to share several ways this form aids us:
1. The Assessment Form is a ready resource in giving us some of
the most fundamental information every Inquirer and Professed
member needs to know as a Lay Missionary. While the form is to
be completed and mailed to the M.E.V/Priests for Life office
after a minimum of ten months of formation, the Form should be
downloaded and worked on as soon as one registers
with the MEV-Lay Associates.
2. The Form should be used in Life Cell gatherings
as a guide for learning and formation of those attending. The
Life Cell Facilitator may want to spend a given time during the
Cell meeting to review several of the answers to specific
Assessment Form questions/requirements.
3. The completion of the Form is required in order
to make one's promises as a Lay Missionary of the Gospel of
I am asking every Lay Missionary to download the Assessment Form
and to be ready to assist others in doing so. In particular, I
call upon those who have been in formation for ten months or
more to please fill out the form and return it to us today. The
key links for all Lay Missionaries who need to make promises or
to assist others in doing so:

May the Lord continue to deepen His life within you this Lenten
Season. Do not hesitate to contact us, and let us know how we
may assist you as a Lay Missionary of the Gospel of Life.
With you on the journey,
