Franciscan Sisters Join Tucson Race to Support Vocations

Following one’s vocation finds rich symbolism in running the race God has in mind for us. Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Sister Leonette Kochan and  Sister Mary Ann Spanjers had fun participating in the recent Diocese of Tucson 3rd Annual Color Walk/Run.  Over 300 people participated in this event that consciously focused on raising awareness as well as showing support for discerners, seminarians, priests, and religious brothers and sisters in the Diocese of Tucson. Indeed, it was acknowledged that all vocations are supported best by strong family lives.

Father Jorge Farias-Saucedo, Director of Vocations, awarded medals to worthy souls.(Sister Mary Ann was among the blessed in the religious category.)

The event culminated with an outdoor Mass celebrated by Bishop Gerald Kicanas! Pray with us that young people find the needed resources to enable them to respond to God’s call of service to His people.
