And of course, there were those who helped with taking people up to see Santa!
It was a great time! Thank you to everyone that volunteered and to all of the adults that helped supervise and run activities for the day!!!

This past Sunday, we had our vocations awareness night! This week is national vocations awareness week.
¡El domingo pasado, tuvimos nuestra noche de concientización vocacional! Esta semana es la semana nacional de concientización vocacional.
We started by showing some videos about vocations. Empezamos mostrando algunos videos sobre vocaciones.
Remember, a vocation can be any calling in life:
We learned that a vocation should bring you joy from the Daughters of St. Paul:
The youths of our parish went and got a chance to listen to stories from different people’s walks in life such as
Sr. Maureen Turlish on her life as being a religious sister.
We also heard from people on other vocations like
And the deaconate
Other pics from the night:
Food from the night, a picture of the adults who supervised and presented, and some of our youths hanging out after the talks.
