Vocation Ministry follows a “school” calendar, quiet in the summer, more activity in the Fall.
The first week in November is “Vocation Awareness Week.” This was changed a few years back to coincide with the Feast of All Saints; Saints being regular people who lived their baptismal call in extraordinary ways. Our Religious Women and Men provide real life examples of how anyone can do this, so here’s to all of our wonderful Religious!
Here in the Philly area we are working on 2 projects that focus on young college women. One is an extension of our outreach to young Hispanics and the other is the result of a great retreat experience at Villanova last year.
We ask your prayers for the success of these two ventures. Strengthening the faith of young Catholics is one of the gifts of vocation ministry to the Church.
