Santa Fe: Vocational Ministry

on 18 Jun, 2016

Santa Fe de Bogotá (Colombia), 06/08/2016, Sr. Rosalba Villamil.- Vocation is what explains, in its deph, the mystery of human life, the mystery of preaching and absolute gratitude. Let us relook at one of the urgencies of the 54th General Chapter which tells us: We must “commit ourselves to Vocation Ministry with responsibility and creativity as a mission of the local community as a whole.”  In the agreements taken at the meeting of the contact persons in each community on July 2015 in Petaluma we agreed to: Establish a clear and concrete agenda about the number and dates for the meetings for vocations to strengthen the work and commitment of each local community.

The visits to the schools began, beginning with the school in Girardot. There, we worked with the grades from eight to eleven. The work was presented together with Sr. María Jacoba Cubillos on April 28 and 29.
