Our First Vocation Table--at the Fest!

We put together a display about our monastery and participated in our first vocations fair on August 8 during the Fest--a large Catholic family festival in Wickliffe, Ohio, on the grounds of the seminary for the Diocese of Cleveland.  We spoke with many families who brought their children through the vocations tent to meet the priests, brothers and nuns who were representing various communities from across the country.  We also spoke with several young women who were curious to discover the religious communities that they could look into and ask us questions. 

We enjoyed meeting the members of the other communities represented and catching up with friends who stopped by to chat and show their support.  Later in the afternoon we joined some friends on their blanket in the field to enjoy a live concert by one of our favorite musicians--Matt Maher!

Thank you for your prayers for our pilgrimage here at the Shrine of Our Lady of Mariapoch last weekend.  It went very well, and we promise to post some pictures soon!
