This year the Diocese of Victoria, Texas had its First Annual Vocation Camp for girls, and Sister Joan was present at the camp.
Sister Joan has been in community since 1985, and has a special love for young people. She was an asset to this camp as she shared with the young ladies that attended the Camp the wisdom of living Religious Life and her own spiritual insights.
The camp was a joint effort of the Vocation and the Youth Ministry Offices of the Diocese of Victoria, Texas. Father Dan Morales is the Vocation Director of the Diocese.
The camp was held at Stony Creek Ranch, near Columbus, Texas, and it gathered girls grades 7 - 12. They spend this time in discernment of their vocation. The talks included all vocations (marriage, single life, and consecrated life). Besides the opportunities for learning and prayer, the girls also enjoyed other activities for fellowship and fun.
