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.
We, the members of Heralds of Good News belonging to St. Paul Province, resolve to live our vocation as Heralds with profound love for Christ and unconditional commitment to the mission. Our formation aims at bringing about human maturity, professional competence and committed faith. As missionaries our task is to be witnesses of the gospel of Christ to all by our personal lives, our community living and our preaching so that Christian communities may be built up. Readiness to fulfill this missionary mandate wherever there is need, particularly due to the shortage of local vocations, is an essential characteristic of our vocation. In a world deeply scarred by injustice and inhuman living conditions our faith calls us to recognize the presence of Christ in the poor, the sick and the marginalized and in solidarity with them we commit ourselves to their integral development. The reality of religious disharmoty, fanaticism and indifferentism calls us to work, hand in hand with others, for the establishment of communal harmony and peace. In fulfilling this mission we rely on divine providence and the intercession of our Heavenly Patrons.
