Outline of a Family Vocation Day
Begin with Prayer, Introductions, and Outline of the Day.
Vocation Reflections and Spiritual Conferences are given to three groups: Parents, Young Adults, and Children. Groups will be separated to designated areas (the Church, Parish Hall, Classrooms, etc.)
Family Socializing with Priests, Religious and Seminarians.
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass followed by a Eucharistic Thanksgiving, and Prayer to our Lady.
Lunch and Entertainment with the Priests, Religious, and Seminarians (Booths representing the Diocese and Religious communities will be open).
Vocation Talks and Spiritual Conferences to separate groups resume.
Family Holy Hour for Life (Eucharistic Adoration):
- Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament
- Meditative Silence with Confessions Available
- Rosary and Eucharistic Hymns (while Confessions are being heard)
- Litany to St. Joseph
- Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament and Dismissal
After Dismissal, the booths will remain open for the Diocese and Religious communities that are present, and also for Family Vocation Ministry inquiries and registrations.
This is an outline of typical Family Vocation Day. The proposed schedule is subject to change depending on the number of participants, parish space, and time available.
