On 21st September, Dawn Evans took a temporary vow to the Single Consecrated Life. On Monday 21st September, in front of a group of family, friends, and colleagues, Dawn Evans, a University Instructor and Postgraduate Researcher at Canterbury Christ Church University took a temporary vow to the Single Consecrated Life. The service was presided over by Bishop Trevor in the Crypt of Canterbury Cathedral.
The Single Consecrated life is a covenant commitment whereby a person professes a vow of consecrated celibacy as a way of making a personal response to God’s call. In most cases candidates will take a temporary vow of one to three years before making a life vow. Dawn’s initial vow is for three years.
She was presented to the Bishop by Sue Hartley who is also a vowed person in a Single Consecrated Life, and by Brother Kevin SSF, who will be the guardian of Dawn’s vow and who will meet and support Dawn through the three years.
After being anointed with oil, Dawn received a wooden cross and a book of office, given as outward signs of the vow and the life being undertaken.
Please pray for Dawn, her friends and family, and all those called to the Single Consecrated Life.
