Heralds of Good News is a Missionary Society of Apostolic Life, started in Eluru diocese, India on 14th October 1984; it became an Institute of Pontifical Right on May 5, 1999. The specific aim of the Society is the promotion of vocations to priesthood, the training of seminarians and the supply of zealous and hardworking missionaries to the dioceses in India and abroad which experience a shortage of priests due to the lack of local,vocations.
Heralds of Good News Missionary Society was founded by Rev. Dr. Jose Kaimlett in 1984 with the approval and blessings of (Late) Rt. Rev. Dr. John Mulagada, Bishop of Eluru. For the better administration of the Society, it was divided into four Provinces, namely St. Paul Province, Mary Queen of Apostles Province, Mother Theresa Province and St. John Paul II Province. Today, each province functions independently, taking care of its members and bringing about new initiatives for the greater Glory of God and Salvation of souls.
We, the members of Heralds of Good News belonging to St. Paul Province, solemnly affirm that our vocation as Heralds is to be dedicated, hardworking and saintly missionaries who have a profound interior life, a deep knowledge of Scripture, a personal and constant contact with Christ in prayer and contemplation and a sincere longing for sanctity. We strive after perfection through our community life, practice of evangelical counsels and through dedicating ourselves to the service of God and our fellow human beings. In our apostolic life and ministry we aim at the glory of God through the evangelization of the people and by our sanctification.
