On Saturday, March 07, 2015 five members from our Parish Vocations Committee (PVC) participated in the Vocations EXPO at St. Mary’s Seminary. They are Jose Pena, Gilbert Ramos, Coni Perez, Carmela Tajonera and Rigoberto Fernandez. In his Inaugural address, His Eminence Daniel Cardinal Di Nardo highlighted the “Year of Consecrated Life” with the theme “Wake up the World”, by presenting a comprehensive history of religious communities. He also invited the congregation to take every opportunity to pray for Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious life.
While sharing about his call to the Priesthood, Rev. T.J. Dolce, Director, Office of Vocations expressed his gratitude to his parents who supported him every step of the way. He also emphasized the significant role of the Parish Vocations Committee and the involvement of all Ministries in the Parish especially the Youth Ministry in creating an enabling environment for Vocation promotion. Rev. Remo Zanatta (from the Somascan Fathers) was the main celebrant for the bilingual Mass along with Fr. T.J. Dolce and Fr. Desy (Please see picture). The PVC members returned very motivated and full of enthusiasm. If you would like to join us in this very worthwhile ministry please contact Deacon Al Birsinger at 832-769-7777 or email@example.com. Let me also take this opportunity to let you know that Sunday April 26, 2015 is the World Day of Prayer for Vocations.
