So what's next? Now that INSPIRE: Called to Love has come and gone,
save the date for:
The Vocations Office has invited
Rhonda Gruenewald of "Vocation Ministry"
to speak at the Church of the Visitation in Norfolk, Saturday, November 5th, 9:30am-2:00pm. Rhonda has authored" Hundredfold: A Guide to Parish Vocation Ministry" a beautiful supplement to the Diocese's plan for Vocations. Based in Houston, Rhonda has been invited by many dioceses to help develop vocation ministries in their dioceses. Audiences love her charm, wit, and wisdom-not to mention her practical know-how about reaching young people with a pro-vocations message.
The workshop will cover how to build a culture of vocations at every parish to start a new wave of vocations in the North Country.
Who should attend? Ordinary lay Catholics who want to help form Parish Vocation Committees, or simply wish to learn more. Also highly encouraged to attend are those with an official role in parishes: priests, deacons, sisters, parish council presidents, youth ministers, OREs, members of DOVS, catechists, especially those who have been introduced to the "We Are Called Plan."
