Vocation Call

Yesterday we began our annual Wednesday XLT (EXALT) Worship Service from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Well over 175 students attended the program which focused on the theme of vocations. Our guest speaker was Msgr. James McDonald who spoke about Extraordinary People for Extraordinary Times.
He asked each of us to answer the call of a vocation in the Church. In our reflection, we might consider the following:
Do you have a love for God?
Do you love for your neighbor?
Do you have a generous heart and a willingness to sacrifice?
Do you have a sense of joy and peace with the Church?
Why not respond to Christ who is calling you? Respond with your whole heart, mind, and soul. Our evening ended with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction. Finally all sang the Divine Praises and the Marian Antiphon Salve Regina.

May the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary.
