Dear Lay Missionary of the Gospel of Life-Inquirer, 

I pray this letter finds you experiencing the glorious hope of the Resurrection. 

This is a special email and video developed specifically with you in mind. The following information is critical in your moving forward with the “making of first or temporary promises” Fr. Pavone and our priest associates are asking about your progress. They are hoping that you are as ready to “make your first promises,” as they are to lead you in them. It has been a true joy for me to witness Fr. Frank leading Inquirers in their profession. Those who have done so witness to the profound and empowering nature of the ceremony. I am asking that you email us at , let us know your intention, and send us the necessary paperwork over the next two weeks. 

Since our records indicate that you registered over 10 months ago as a Missionary of the Gospel of Life-Lay Associate Inquirer; you have completed the first step toward making first or “temporary promises.” The second step is o fill out your Assessment Form. You may obtain the Form by downloading it in PDF form. If you have problems with downloading and printing the form, please call John Fagundes at 888-735-3448 ext 224.

The Form must be fully completed, signed and mailed to our office at:  Missionaries of the Gospel of Life, P.O. Box 141172 Staten Island, NY 10314.  

Thirdly, along with the Assessment Form, write a letter to Fr.Pavone: Moderator General of the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life, formally requesting admission to temporary promises. Do keep copies of the form and letter for your own records.   

You will be notified of the evaluation of the Assessment Form, the mailing of the recommendation form to the priest you designated, and its return. The Moderator General will consult with his advisors and inform the applicant of his/her acceptance. Arrangements will then be made for the time and place of the “profession of promises.” 

I look forward to hearing from you very soon. Do not let anything deter you from the privilege and joy of becoming one of the first members of this prophetic and historic Society. Unite with those who are making a special consecration to proclaiming before the Church and world the first and foundational right to life!  I am prayerfully and eagerly awaiting your response. 

United with you in manifesting the Gospel of Life,
