Annual Vocations Day for 8th Grade Students

April 19, 2016

Brian Booth, postulant, and Fr. Christopher, Vocation Director, attended the 22nd Annual Vocation Day for 8th Grade students of the Archdiocese at the Basilica of the National Shrine. Before and after the 10:30 Mass for all in the upper church, students stopped by our table and the others of different religious orders to learn something about consecrated and priestly life. They came with the usual questions about our life, and some interesting ones of their own. We pray that this annual effort to promote awareness of these options for these young boys and girls, as they prepare to go off to high school, will bear fruit in years to come.
