Commissioning Mass 2010


Nov. 14, 2010
St. Camillus Catholic Church
Silver Spring, MD

Sandra Bradford, Bryce Bradford, and Susan Slavin

This Mass honored the three missioner candidates' completion of the 13-week formation program and signified their spiritual readiness for mission.

Bryce and Sandra will travel to Zambia in February. Susan is delaying her departure to Kenya as she accompanies her mother in the final stages of her life.

Please pray for Susan's family and all of the missioners as they prepare for their ministry overseas.
