In the first weekend of May, students from Auburn, Dundas, Eastwood, Cerdon College Merrylands, North Shore, Randwick and Varroville gathered at the Hermitage for the annual Year 12 Vocations Forum, conducted by the MYM Sydney Team.

Using our national theme Awaken, participants were invited to explore the call to love and service through Christian vocation as shown in the lives of Jesus, Mary, Marcellin and others. They also reflected Pope Francis’ call to young people; “Wake up the world with the gifts of your lives!” The highlight of the weekend was the vocation presentations, which included representatives from each vocational calling; Michael and Marie Dela Cruz and son Moses (married couple/parenthood), Sr Amy MGL (religious sister), Br Jonnel Sisneros FMS (religious brother), Fr Steven Varney (priesthood) and Supi Taufaao (single person in discernment). The student feedback from the Forum, as reflected below, has affirmed our priority in Marist Youth Ministry to provide reflective spaces and processes for senior students, in enabling them the opportunity to reflect on God’s call for their lives.

“The weekend has helped me deepened my faith and relationship with God and connecting with other young Marists. This weekend has provided me with the opportunity to take time out to think about my vocation as it is something that had never really crossed my mind. I believe God is calling me to do something with my life.” (Year 12 participant)
