Vocations Awareness Week - In honor of National Vocation Awareness week, SJVS students students were able to hear first-hand accounts of what it means to find true happiness in discerning God's call in their lives from priests, religious sisters and married individuals. In addition to learning about what a vocation is and how it can be discerned, the students gained insights from all of the presenters on how each one lives out his or her own personal calling.
