PAPAR – Three hundred youths and parents celebrated the 4th Sunday of Easter by having a World Vocation Sunday programme combined with the monthly youth gathering. This programme was jointly organised by the Vocation Committee and Parish Youth Pastoral Team of St Joseph Papar on 17 Apr 2016.
Representatives from three religious communities were there: Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception (FSIC), Marist Brothers and Brothers of St Gabriel (Monfort).
Three other religious communities could not make it for the programme: Good Shepherd Sisters, Daughters of St Paul, and Sisters of the Discalced Carmelite Order. However, the organisers shared on their behalf.
The purpose of the programme was to expose the youths and parents to the existence of religious communities in Sabah and their charisms. During the Sunday Mass, Fr Jalius Sading, as main celebrant, shared on the three callings or states in life as explained in the Catholic teachings, that is, priestly or religious life, married life and single life. He said that these three callings possess their own importance in the Church. – Lester Randy Rubintinus, TPBP Coordinator
