May 16, 2007                                      The New Movement Begins

                  The Workers of the Vineyard


In the evening of the Commemoration of Our Lady of the Fields, His Excellency Mar Sarhad Yawsip Jammo accepted the temporary promises of Leena Somo, Reem Salman and Rana Raban, the founding members of the new Diocesan Lay Association named "Workers of the Vineyard," during a Mass he celebrated in the presence of Mar Bawai Soro and three of his priests who came especially for the occasion, as well as Fr. Noel Gorgis, pastor of St. Paul Assyrian Chaldean Church in North Hollywood, who also traveled to San Diego with several parishioners to attend the event, and other Chaldean clergy and hundreds of faithful. The atmosphere was jubilant and the hearts of those who attended were in high spirits, especially the three candidates and their families, some of whom had flown in from as far as Michigan. After the Mass there was a reception in the Hall of St. Peter Church.

The Workers of the Vineyard will serve the Chaldean Diocese of St. Peter the Apostle as they continue their education and training in the Aramaic language and the theological patrimony of the Church of the East. We pray for Leena, Reem and Rana, who began this new chapter in their life, that our Lord may fill their hearts with his graces through his mother, Our Lady of the Fields.
