A gathering of the Young Church with Bishop Bambera to kickoff National Vocation Awareness Week in the Diocese of Scranton.
Sunday, November 4, 2018
4:40pm- Praise & Worship led by Francis Zelinka
5:00pm- Mass (Cathedral of Saint Peter)
6:15pm- Reception (Diocesan Pastoral Center)
“Dear young people, we didn’t come into this world to ‘vegetate’, to take it easy, to make our lives a comfortable sofa to fall asleep on,” said Pope Francis at World Youth Day 2016 in Krakow, Poland. “No, we came for another reason: to leave a mark. It is very sad to pass through life without leaving a mark.”
Bishop Bambera is inviting the young church of the Diocese of Scranton to gather in the Cathedral of Saint Peter on Sunday, November 4 for a special Mass at 5 p.m. followed by a reception in the Diocesan Pastoral Center. As the young church gathers, the question at hand: How are you answering Pope Francis’ call to ‘leave a mark’ and live as intentional and missionary disciples in our world today?
Sarah J. Yaklic, Director of Grotto Network and a native of the Diocese of Scranton, will offer a reflection at the end of Mass about her experience in Rome at the 2018 Synod of Bishops and how she is living out her Catholic faith as a young adult in the world today. She will also be involved in a few activities at the reception.
All are welcome to attend, especially high school students, college students, and young adults.
