Let Your Life Speak... Vocation Alive!

March 10, 2010
From Sunday to Wednesday, March 14-17th, Toronto will be hosting the national vocation and formation conference at the Courtyard Marriott in downtown Toronto.  It is an event organized by the National Association of Vocation and Formation Directors (or NAVFD), and they expect close to 200 religious and lay participants from Canada and the US.  The themeBlack and white photo Fr. Ron Rolheiser - vocation and formation conference keynote speaker to be explored is “Let Your Life Speak… Vocation Alive.”  The keynote speaker is acclaimed author and lecturer Fr. Ron Rolheiser, pictured right, whose weekly column is carried by more than 60 newspapers worldwide.
Sr. Maureen Baldwin is a member of the Congregation of Notre Dame of Montreal, and the Executive Director of NAVFD.  She explained to me earlier this week that the concept of vocation doesn’t just apply to religious and priests. It also includes those called to live as married or single persons.  And so, you may be interested to know that this conference is open to any person or group interested in promoting, supporting and bringing about a culture of vocations.
Tune in to Salt + Light Radio on Saturday, March 13th, as we interview Fr. Ron Rolheiser about this conference.
