Each summer, young men from the Diocese of Charlotte are invited to the annual Vocation Awareness Day. This year's interactive program will be offered on Aug. 8 at St. Ann Church in Charlotte.
"Vocation Awareness Day is intended to assist young men in exploring and discovering God's will in their lives," said Father Christopher Gober, diocesan director of vocations. "For some, God may be calling them to a priestly vocation. To that end, we want to do everything to encourage, support and foster future vocations."
High school and college-aged men who may be hearing the call to the priesthood are invited to learn more during Vocation Awareness Day, to be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 8, at St. Ann Church at 3635 Park Road in Charlotte.
Bishop Peter J. Jugis will celebrate Mass at 10:30 a.m., and priests and seminarians from around the diocese will be on hand for this day of fellowship, recreation and reflection.
For more information, contact Father Gober at 704-370-3327 or vocationsmail@charlottediocese.
