A Vocation Vacation

SOLI welcomes the York University's Catholic Chaplaincy 
Vocation Vacationers!

This past weekend the SOLI Community enjoyed hosting of a number of young women from the Catholic Chaplaincy of York University in Toronto who had bravely ventured out on a "Vocation Vacation"! Together with their chaplain Father Daren Bryk , of the Companions of the Cross, and Mrs. Sam Cummings, assistant chaplain, the seven university students came to Cambridge to check out what a day in the life of a SOLI sister might be like! This was actually our third hosting of vocation vacationers!

From Friday evening until Sunday morning the group joined the sisters in their daily prayers and duties, listened to a number of talks by individaul sisters on our Community's charism, foundation, history, spirituality / prayer life, and on vocations in general with emphesis on religious life and the three Evangelical Counsels. We also had a question and answer session where the sisters shared with the young women their own journey to religious life.  In the evening on Saturday, the girls shared their beautiful gift of music with all of our seniors in Marian Residence Retirement Home. Be assured, vocation vacationers, of our continued prayers for you as the Lord leads you toward discernment of His Holy Will in your lives. Open your hearts wide and you will see the Lord fill it with love for His holy will...and the courage to follow it. God bless you!
