The Maronite Servants of Christ the Light gave a vocation presentation on Wednesday, August 9, and witness for the children enrolled in the one week “Summer Fun” program at St. Bernard Roman Catholic Church in Assonet, MA.
We taught the children a number of beautiful things about a religious vocation, specifically, what a nun is and what is her role, mission and purpose in the Church. We explained to them the religious habit and the three vows of obedience, chastity and poverty. The group also had the opportunity to ask us questions which they did with enthusiasm. Some of them asked whether we were born as nuns, what we do on a daily basis, and where do we live.
At the end of the presentation, we prayed with the children and gave each a cross necklace to remind them of God’s great love for them.
