Vocation Day "Marathon"!

December 8:

Jackie, Emily, and Sr. Emi went to give a vocation talk at St. Clare of Assisi School in Ellisville, Missouri. The school had a retreat day for the students in honor of the feast of the Immaculate Conception, and part of the retreat was a session on vocations. At the beginning of the day, Sr. Emi was interviewed on the school's live internal television broadcast! Then we gave four 40-minute vocation talks to students from ages 5 to 14! We used clips from the movie Evan Almighty, and a YouTube video of our sisters who are singing in the Christmas concert tour. We spoke about vocation in general and also about the charism of the Daughters of St. Paul. (It was Jackie's first vocation talk as a postulant!) When we came home, we were tired but happy to have shared with so many children about our life and vocation.
