The Saint Matthias Teen Youth Ministry had the pleasure of having a stellar panel to discuss vocations. Teens learned that vocations is “a plan that God invites us to live that will lead to our happiness on Earth and eternal life and with Him in Heaven.” (Mundelein Seminary, 2005). The adults came to share the pan that God invited them to live. Our panel included Lucas Gepert, Deacon Alton Davis, Von Martin, Debbie Self, Seminarians Martin and from the Society of Saint Joseph of the Sacred Heart. Check out more of what the Teen Youth Ministry is up to.

This weekend, Pope Francis is celebrating families through his participation in the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia. As he has said before: “How precious is the family as the privileged place for transmitting the faith!” The Pope’s visit is a great opportunity for our families to transmit, affirm, and witness to our faith in Jesus Christ. Have you considered taking the Walk with Francis pledge with your family? Take the pledge with your parents, your siblings, your spouse, or your children, and then live out the pledge together as a group. Strengthen your family bonds and share your faith as you transform your community! Take the pledge as an individual or family at WalkwithFrancis.org, and challenge friends and relatives to do the same.
