What is Called by Name?

We’re all called to holiness, but what does that mean? How does God invite us to holiness through His perfect plan for our lives? Come and explore our universal call to holiness as well as the particular vocations to Priesthood and the Religious Life at the second annual Called by Name event. This evening for high school men and women features Fr. Matt McClain and Sr. Bethany Madonna (from the Sisters of Life) as speakers.  Ben Walther, a nationally- renowned worship leader, will play during Mass and a time of adoration.  Fr. Mike Ackerman, the assistant vocation director, will mc the night.

No cost.
