Francis Chin who gave the talk about the meaning of vocations. Father stressed that even though there are different Christian callings (vocations) but they all have the same goal – a call to holiness. He also touched on the joys and pains of each vocation. The talk had effectively inspired the youth to discern their vocations and life-style choices.

May the Lord continue to accompany all the young participants who had come and seek the will of God for their lives. May they open their minds and hearts and keep going toward the Light which will lead them to the perfection of love.
