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.
