Lauren Vater, the 2007-2008 volunteer with the DLC/UN office in New York
was missioned to Bolivia for three and a half years at a ceremony in Maryknoll on December 13th. Anne Marie Bucher, OP (Hope), Eileen Gannon, OP (Sparkill), Patricia Howell, OP (Blauvelt) and Dorothy Maxwell, OP (Blauvelt) joined Lauren’s parents in celebrating the completion of the Maryknoll program for new lay missioners. 

In a moving service in the Maryknoll Chapel, eleven lay missioners and one sister were commissioned by the representatives of the Maryknoll Society, and blessed by those present as they each received their assignment and mission cross.  A reception for family and friends followed the ceremony.

Lauren left for Bolivia on January 8th.  She will spend six months in Cochabamba for language study before going the mountains area where she will join other Maryknoll missionaries.
