Dear Fr. Director,

          After having reflected on the qualifications expected for membership in the SVD FRIENDS, we hereby submit and dedicate ourselves as members of SVD FRIENDS of ABRA.

         As our own personal sacrfice for the Missionary cause, we pledge to: 1) Add the Prayer of St. Arnold Janssen (The Jewel) and one decade of the Holy Rosary to my daily morning praise for all SVD Missionaries throughout the world and 2) Offer all our work, prayers, sacrifices, joys and sorrows on one day of the week for my chosen missionary.

          As our missionary commitment, we will work for the promotion of vocations at home, school and areas of work; participate actively in looking after the needs of the missions; and attend regular meetings and spiritual exercises on mission.

            Through the intercession of St. Arnold Janssen and St. Joseph the worker, we pledge to become active mission partners of the SVD-PHN ABRA. Amen.
