On May 2, I will be celebrating twelve years as a priest! Fr. Pierre Champoux, Director of Vocations for the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall, invited me to share my vocation story.
Like every vocation, there are always ups and downs! However, I shared briefly how God continues to overwhelm me with His joy! As he mentioned – my story from Biology, into computers, then Theology – the journey with God is the best adventure ever!
We spoke of how to encourage vocations today, especially to the Holy Priesthood. During this season of Easter, let us continue to be open to the joy of the Risen Lord! Praying for you. Please continue to pray for me.
ps. Though I never made it to World Youth Day in Toronto, 2002, I do feel like I was there! The youth group that helped me understand my faith, and guided me while I began asking questions about life, were present and shared with me their joy from WYD2002! Let us continue to pray for our youth today, to be open to the vocation God puts on their hearts!
