On November 21-23, 2008, Sisters Juliana, Regina Marie, Rose Therese and Felicity participated in the Region X Catholic Youth Conference in Amarillo, Texas. They were a religious presence at the event, being available to the youth and promoting vocations.
The conference was held at the Amarillo Civic Center, and its theme was “Be Bold, Be Proud, Be Catholic.” It drew youth from Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.
Featuring Steve Angrisano and Mike Patin, and providing opportunities for prayer and the reception of the sacraments, the conference helped young people to grow in knowledge of their faith and deepen their spiritual lives. Fellowship within each youth group and meeting new friends from other cities also strengthened their Catholic identity.
Our Sisters had plenty of opportunities to share with the youth about the spiritual life and vocations, both during the breaks and at the vocations booth that our community had at the exhibit hall of the conference. Sister Rose Therese and Sister Felicity had the opportunity to briefly share their vocation story at one of the general sessions of the conference. Young people are thirsting to know more about God, and are searching for their place in the world and in the Church. It is a joy to be with them and give them whatever aid we can during this crucial time of their lives.
