KOTA KINABALU – The annual religious vocation seminar drew 130 participants (69 men, 61 women) at Pace Bene Formation Centre Purak Papar on 23-25 Feb 2018.
The camp was organised by the Archdiocesan Vocation Team headed by Franciscan Sister Terry Loukang under the Council of Religious.
Among the religious institutes present were the Daughters of St Paul, Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception, Brothers of St Gabriel, Marist Brothers, La Salle Brothers, and the Franciscan Capuchin Friars.
Topics covered were the religious calling, how to discern a religious calling, and the spiritual life.
Time was given for each congregation to share its charism and mission, for an open forum as well as for spiritual direction (participants to talk privately to any of the religious present).
The event ended with lunch after the closing Mass.
