Covenant Ceremony- Dec. 8, 10 am, Rogers Chapel, Rogers Building, Maryknoll Sisters
The new missioners enter into a covenant, based in our ancient Judeo-Christian tradition, with God, the Church and with Maryknoll Lay Missioners by proclaiming and signing the covenant based on Maryknoll Lay Missioners’ 8 Core Values. This covenant is witnessed by the assembly, chosen witnesses and signed by those witnesses and Maryknoll Lay Missioners leadership. Immediately before the covenant is signed, the new missioners are invited to proclaim the covenant together with other Maryknoll Lay Missioners present, both currently contracted and returned.
The celebrant for the Mass will be Fr. Jack Rathschmidt, OFM Cap., who has offered the Scripture workshops for the Orientation Programs for nearly 20 years.
