Black Witness, Radical Love: Vocations Are for Our Folk (too)!

About this event

This webinar will explore how vocations – to which all baptized Catholics are called -- are the fruit and the seeds of a radical love. Whether single, married, clergy or religious; a properly discerned vocation would enable us to live more fully, to love more radically, to more joyfully bear witness to the Gospel and to more authentically reveal (and perhaps attract others to) the love of Christ. Only this can produce and sustain more vocations.
