Colombia. During the last ten days of August, our communities in Barranquilla, Medellín and Cali (Colombia West) held brainstorming sessions on vocational ministry.
Organized by the vocational ministry team of the province, the event was intended for male and female religious, priests and lay people, who are already engaged in fostering vocations, for the purpose of sharing information and encouraging one another. The gathering marked the beginning a Vocational Year, to run in tandem with the celebration of the bicentennial of the birth of Fr. Claret. Fr. Juan Carlos Martos, secretary general for vocational ministry, was responsible for the program.
