The Vocational Month in Uruguay will follow the slogan: “God had a dream for St. Joseph… what dream do you have for yourself?”
Newsdesk (June 2, 2021 11:51 Gaudium Press) The Church in Uruguay will celebrate the Vocational Month in June following the slogan: “God had a dream for St. Joseph…what dream do you have for yourself?”
According to Bishop Luis Eduardo Gonzalez, Auxiliary Bishop of Montevideo and president of the Vocations and Ministries Sector of the Bishops Conference of Uruguay, this year’s recommendation is intended “to support each diocese proposal.”
World Day of Prayer for Vocations
Based on the message of Pope Francis for the 58th World Day of Prayer for Vocations and commemorating the year dedicated to St. Joseph, the Bishops Conference created a poster and digital materials for each week of the month.
The Seminarians of the Interdiocesan Major Seminary Christ the King collaborated on the development of these materials. According to Bishop Gonzalez, these materials are “a proposal for prayer and reflection that aims to encourage and accompany the search for the vocational dream of each person.”
Discover or renew our vocation as a gift from God
“We encourage and invite all communities to let themselves be guided by the Holy Spirit that has been poured into our hearts and to discover or renew our vocation as a gift from God. We want to share with young people God’s dreams for each of us and celebrate them with joy and hope” concluded the prelate.
The Church in Uruguay has nine minor seminaries for the diocesan clergy and 86 major seminaries: 31 are for the diocesan clergy and 55 for priests. In addition, there are 231 diocesan priests and 214 priests, 54 religious men, and 635 nuns. (EPC)
