BIS #2733 VOCATION COMMISSION MEETING AT DON BOSCO LONAVLA

Fr. Brian Moras sdb


LONAVLA, DECEMBER 17, 2011: The second meeting of the Vocation Commission of the Province of Mumbai met in Lonavla on December 14, 2011.  Those present were Frs. Ajoy, Cletus, Brian, Roger, Mayank, Michael, Anton and Deacon Osborn.
Fr. Brian took an interactive session on 'Being Effective in the Vocation Promotion Ministry'.  He brought a resource book entitled 'The Call' for each of the Vocation Promoters. We were thrilled with the creative sessions and ideas presented in the book.  Following this, there was rich sharing of experiences and discussion on criteria for selection of candidates among the team members.  We were also privileged to have our Vice-Provincial, Rev. Dr. Fr. Ajoy who shared insights from the clinical and psychiatric point of view on the issues that came up for discussion.
Each of the vocation promoters presented the names of the candidates who were interested in joining us for the following year as also shared on the problems that they encounter in the Ministry.  The dates of the summer and vocation camps were also finalized.  Fr. Ajoy encouraged us to follow good processes in our Ministry as also keep a written record of the vocation youngsters we meet or interview.
We realized that God has been good to us in this Ministry.  We ended by thanking Him for the Divine promise, "I am with you, hence, do not be afraid."
