Around 40 young people gathered recently in the Philippines for the 2017 Marist Vocation Jamboree.
The theme of this year’s Jamboree was “Share the gentle presence of God to the world, as Mary did.”
Held in Matti District Catholic Centre, Brgy. Matti, Digos City, the event was hosted by the Marist Fathers’ Community in Matti, and facilitated by the vocations directors of the Marist Fathers, Marist Sisters, and Marist Missionary Sisters.
The event introduced the Marist vocation to the young people and was a combination of lectures, reflection and sharing, games, and prayer.
Several participants expressed their delight in the experience and look to furthering their contact with the Marists.
