Dear Lay Missionary of the Gospel of Life,
Breaking News! A new
Online Community site has been created just for Lay Missionaries
of the Gospel of Life like you!
Starting today we can all share as members of our Missionaries
of the Gospel of Life Online Community. This gathering place
will be a wonderful asset for the building of our relationships,
equipping us more fully for ministry and to assist us in being
better witnesses of the Gospel of Life. Everything we need is on
the site, except you! I want to personally invite you to join me
on our Missionaries of the Gospel of Life Online Community. You
may register today at www.pfl-mev.org/user/CreateUser.aspx.
After you've registered you will have access to the site and the
ability for us to dialogue and strategize online. Remember, this
M.E.V. Community site has been developed specifically and
exclusively for Lay Missionaries of the Gospel of Life. Please
do not share the registration link with those who are not Lay
Missionaries of the Gospel of Life. I hope that every M.E.V. Lay
Associate will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
There are also plans for our building community through phone
conferences and/or web conferences. Father Frank and I have been
working with our technical team to facilitate such gatherings in
the near future. Be on the watch for information that will
detail when and how to join in the conferencing. Father Frank
and I look forward to sharing with you. Please be sure that we
have your most current and best email and phone information.
Let's also take advantage of what is already available. I ask
that you review our standard M.E.V. Lay Association site:
www.priestsforlife.org/missionary at least weekly. In
particular, the home page has some new pictures of associates
participating in their Promise Ceremonies www.priestsforlife.org/missionary/laypromises.htm.
Are you scheduled to make your promises?
