OATH OF FIDELITY ON ASSUMING AN OFFICE TO BE EXERCISED IN THE NAME OF THE CHURCH (in accordance with canon 833, nn. 5-8)

I, (write your Full Name), in assuming the office of (mention your office eg. Member, English Council – If you are an office bearer state your office eg. Co-ordinator, English Council), promise that in my words and in my actions I shall always preserve communion with the Catholic Church.
With great care and fidelity I shall carry out the duties incumbent on me toward the Church, both universal and particular, in which, according to the provisions of the law, I have been called to exercise my service.
In fulfilling the charge entrusted to me in the name of the Church, I shall hold fast to the deposit of faith in its entirety; I shall faithfully hand it on and explain it, and I shall avoid any teachings contrary to it.
I shall follow and foster the common discipline of the entire Church, especially leading a life of prayer, service and communion with everyone and in a special way to those entrusted to my care. I shall also strive to deepen my personal relationship with Jesus through Reading and meditating on God’s Word, reaching out to my family, parish and the Catholic Charismatic Renewal and by spending time in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. I desire to avoid any occasion to sin and to live a life of holiness. I shall strive to have recourse to the Sacraments and in a special way to daily reception of the Eucharist (in as much as is possible) and to regular Confession. I shall maintain the observance of all ecclesiastical laws, especially those contained in the Code of Canon Law.
With Christian obedience I shall follow what the Bishops, as authentic doctors and teachers of the faith, declare, or what they, as those who govern the Church, establish. I shall also, with due regard for the character and purpose of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal, faithfully assist the diocesan Bishop and his delegates in every possible way, so that the apostolic activity, exercised in the name and by mandate of the Church, may be carried out in communion with the Church.
With great care and fidelity I shall also carry out the duties incumbent on me toward the Catholic Charismatic Renewal, modelling my conduct in accordance with the statutes and provisions of CHARIS, the National Service of Communion (NSC), the Bombay Service of Communion (BSC) and the (English / Konkani / Hindi-Marathi Council) in which, according to the provisions of the law, I have been called to exercise my service.
So help me God, and God’s Holy Gospels on which I place my hand.
