Cabanatuan youth to hold vocation vigil
CABANATUAN City, April 11, 2012—In preparation for the 50th Golden Anniversary of the Diocese of Cabanatuan, the Diocesan Commission on Vocation and Youth Commission will hold an overnight vigil for vocations at the College of Immaculate Conception on April 27-28.
With the theme ‘Vocation: the Spirit of the Love of God’, the organizers are expecting 500 to 600 participants who will join the event.
Joannie Bolisay, diocesan youth coordinator, said the inspiration for the theme was taken from the message of the Holy Father for the World Day of Prayer for Vocations, which is “Vocations, the Gift of the Love of God” to be celebrated on April 29, the Fourth Sunday of Easter.
Dubbed as Vocation 50/50, the activity aims to send 50 seminarians in the 50th year of the diocese in 2013.
“As of now, the overnight vocation vigil will be the first program for the upcoming celebration, we wanted to know the response of the youth in order to make vocation and youth programs suitable for their needs,” Bolisay said.
Bolisay pointed out that the vigil aims to deepen vocation awareness among the young people, to promote the vocation to priesthood and religious life and the launching of vocation programs within the diocese.
The diocesan vocation director, Fr. Sedfrey Calderon hopes that through the vigil, young people may spend and keep watch with the Good Shepherd through prayer, sharing of stories and showcasing of talents for them to discern more fully their life direction.
The vocation vigil is a program of the vocation commission with the help of the youth commission of Cabanatuan diocese. (Jandel Posion)
