Ambassadors For Jesus





The Ambassadors for Jesus celebrates three decades spent in showcasing Roman Catholic Unity through pageants, prayer meets, all night Vigils, rosary crusades, football tournaments, concerts, awards and a newsletter. The Ambassadors for Jesus, under direction of their Founder Melvyn Brown, and after four Spiritual Advisors, have spread Catholic Evangelization to almost an entire generation of youth and indulgent adults. The truth of the matter was emblazoned in the Latin saying, “Deus volte”, If God wills it.


His Grace, Archbishop S. Lucas Sirkar, sdb, said in his Official letter: “Hearty Congratulations on the occasion of the 30 years of service of AFJ in the Archdiocese of Kolkata. “I assure you of my prayers and blessings on your apostolate”.


The DVD “Colours of Christmas”, produced by Melvyn Brown has also been sent for the 23rd International Catholic Film and Multimedia Festival, “Niepokakanow 2008” Poland.

In the realms of Lay Catholic evangelization, few have done as much as the Ambassadors For Jesus in Calcutta, India, under the direction of its Founder Melvyn Brown.  The 22nd Millennium Award this year, 2008 is another addition to their repertoire. Preserving sustainable virtues to inspire future generations in the need to

enhance genuine life values is the priority AFJ wields. This year the Awards dominate the Catholic scene with men and women who have gone ' beyond the call of duty ' to handle their immediate world of work and worship : bringing hope and love into difficult situations.
