Here I Am Lord

I had a great weekend in St. Charles, Illinois at the Here I Am Lord Vocation Conference sponsored by St Patrick's Parish. It is a phenomenal event in which the whole parish comes together to host religious from all over the country in order that they have time to share their vocation story with the many young people in the diocese. I think this is the type of event that needs to be modeled at other parishes in other dioceses. It was a great celebration and provided much prayerful reflection time for those who might be discerning a call to religious life. Thanks to all of the organizers and so many people who helped out in so many ways - host families, peer counselors, prayer partners,breakfast cookers, table cloth washers, floor moppers, etc...
Hope all of the youth who participated had a great time as well. I have to believe those juggling with me and all the Salesians did! Looking forward to doing it again next year.
