Beginning now through April the season of Busy Person Retreats will be taking off. Vocation Directors from the Philadelphia area will be going to Chestnut Hill College (1/23-25); Villanova University ( 2/6-8); Bucknell University (2/13-16); Temple University (2/20-23); LaSalle University (2/27-3/1); St. Joseph’s University (3/6-8); Rosemont (3/15-18) and Kean University (4/4-6). Please keep the students who will attend these retreats and the vocation directors who accompany them in your prayers.
The Hispanic Vocation Committee is working hard to attract young people of Hispanic origin to religious life. Villanova University is being very helpful and supportive. Your prayers for the success of these efforts is greatly appreciated. If you speak Spanish and would like to help in these efforts, please contact Maryellen Glackin.
April 2, the area vocation directors are inviting young adults and members of religious congregations to share a day of ministry called Serving with Mercy, in the Kensington Section of Philadelphia. Volunteers are welcome! We’ll send more details next month!
