Sr. Pia Ignatius and I attended a Vocation Awareness event at St. John’s University in Jamaica, NY. At the invitation of Br. Mike Sheerin FMS, who serves as a Campus Minister at St. John’s University. Campus Ministry hosts three different evenings throughout the year highlighting Religious Priests one night, Religious Brothers another night and Religious Sisters the third night in an effort to promote vocation awareness among students on campus.
The event began with Mass in St. Thomas More, the University Church on campus. After Holy Communion there was a vocation talk given by a postulant with the Sisters of Charity. She informed the students that we would be dining with them after Mass and available for informal conversations
The real values to this evening were the witness of consecrated life and praying at Mass with the students.
