ARTICLE INDEX

The Clerical Missionary Society of Apostolic Life of the Heralds of Good News whose principal seat is established in the Diocese of Eluru, was founded by the Reverend Father Jose Kaimlett and erected as of diocesan right on May 5, 1991 by the Most Reverend John Mulagada, Bishop of Eluru.

The Society has a charism that is unique to itself of training and supplying zealous and saintly priests wherever there is need in the universal Church.

Supported by the testimonial letters of the other diocesan Bishops concerned, the Most Reverend John Mulagada, Bishop of Eluru, asked the Apostolic See to have the Society of the Heralds of Good News being recognized as of pontifical right.

The Most Holy Father Pope John Paul II, having heard the favourable opinion of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and for Societies of Apostolic Life, graciously granted the above mentioned request.

By means of this present Decree, therefore, this Congregation declares that, from now onwards, the Society of the Heralds of Good News is a Clerical Society of Apostolic Life of pontifical right.

The same Congregation moreover approves and confirms the Constitutions which correspond to the English text kept in its archives.

All things to the contrary not with standing.

Vatican, May 5, 1999, 58th birthday of Father Jose Kaimlett, Founder of the Society of the Heralds of Good News.
