Brazil. From July 13 to 17, Fr. Juan Carlos Martos, general secretary of Vocational Ministry, coordinated an Encounter of Vocational Ministry in the Claretian seminary of Batatais, for Claretian students with their formators and four missionary sisters of Saint Anthony Mary Claret. Next, from July 17 to 19, in the same place, another Encounter of Vocational Ministry was celebrated, in which a large number of lay persons who are collaborating in the promotion of vocations in the posts that the Congregation has in the Province of Brazil participated. Fr. Juan Carlos was also the promoter and director of the work of these very busy days. We want to emphasize the good reception that the Claretian charism has and the growing sensitivity toward raising and promoting all vocations, particularly for the Claretian Family.
