Dear Missionary of the Gospel of Life:
I pray this letter finds you in earnest preparation for holy week and the resurrection!
Good News! Fr. Frank and the staff of Priests for Life/MEV have established over 20 dates and places where Missionaries can gather to make promises and have fellowship. These ceremony dates provide a golden opportunity for those who need to complete their Assessment Form and make Promises, www.priestsforlife.org/missionary/laypromises.htm. The gatherings also provide an intentional time and place for all Missionaries - professed, candidates for profession and those in formation - to gather for worship and fellowship.
Four of the twenty dates are national events where Missionaries throughout the United States can gather with Fr. Frank who will conduct the Promise Ceremonies! It is only necessary to attend the date (specific times will be confirmed) of the ceremony and not the conference in its entirety.
Please review ceremony dates, events and locations below, and let us know if you would like to make your promises (contact us today) or simply join in the fellowship. Again, Fr. Pavone will personally conduct the following ceremonies and is inviting your participation. The first date is the date of the ceremony and the exact times will be forthcoming. The key at this point is your letting us know of your interest.
Ceremony May: 20: Heartbeat International Conference (May 18-20), Richmond, VA www.heartbeatinternational.org/Trainings/Conference/information.htm
Ceremony June: 20: National Right to Life Convention (June 17-20), Charlotte, NC: www.nrlc.org/convention
Ceremony July: 10 (afternoon) Rachelís Vineyard Leadership Training (July 7-10), Malvern, PA: www.rachelsvineyard.org/Downloads/09%20Leadership%20Conference/Leadership%20Conference.htm
Ceremony Week of October 26 (date/time TBA) Eternal Word Television Network, Irondale, AL
Please contact me today if there is any possibility you would like to join Fr. Frank and the other Missionaries at any of these ceremonies. The staff and I look forward to assisting you in preparing to make your promises and to clarify the benefits to all Missionaries in gathering.
Would you please take a moment and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call John Fagundes at 1.888.735.3448.
I also ask that you stay consistent with our Daily Prayer of Consecration, Daily Prayer to End Abortion and the First Friday Pro-life Examination of Conscience. These prayers and reflections are critical in uniting us and are distinctive to our Missionary Spirituality.
On behalf of Fr. Frank and the Priests for Life/MEV staff, have a blessed Holy Week and Easter and let us know how we may serve you.
Jim Pinto, Jr. M.E.V.
