“Where your talents and needs of the world cross, there lies your vocation.” (Aristotle)
Vocation is a gift from God. God’s will reveals itself through the desires of one’s own heart. Sometimes people cannot respond accordingly or even recognise their vocation because of an unawareness of the call.
To help young men recognise God’s call and help them discern their vocation, the De La Salle Brothers of the Pakistan Sector, assisted by the Aspirants, conducted a three-day vocation camp at St. Miguel House of Formation.
The theme for the Vocation camp was “One call, many voices”. Thirty-three candidates from areas across the country were in attendance. Sector Coordinator, Br Shahzad George Gill and Br Saddique Gill, Director of St. Miguel House of Formation, welcomed all participants and wished them well on their journey of discernment.
Brothers facilitated sessions on the following topic:
- Prayer Life,
- What is a vocation?
- The life and work of St. John Baptist De La Salle,
- Lasallian Mission in Pakistan,
- Life in the Formation House.
A talent night was also held to give participants a chance to show their diverse talents. Individual personal interviews with each candidate and members of the Formation House staff concluded the program.
Overall the program was deemed a success.
