Renewal of Commitment by MLVD Members

A total of 25 MLVD members made their commitment as Lay Missionaries of the Society of the Divine Word. They are from two of our parishes, Queen of Angeles, Riverside and Our Lady of Lourdes, Los Angeles.
On September 9, 2017 sixteen members of the MLVD Queen of Angeles, Parish, Riverside renewed their commitment as Lay missionaries and 3 new members made their commitment for the first time. During the Mass they expressed their appreciation for the Society and for the province. In a short presentation after the Mass they shared with the parishioners the process with which they were able to acquire the new Kairos facility and how they were able to remodel and renovate the structure to suit their needs.
