Fr. Joel D' Souza, SDB

The Local Vocation Animator’s Meet was held on July 29, 2017 from 9.30 am to 1.00 pm at Don Bosco, Panjim. The Local Vocation Animators of the various houses assembled for this half day input session. Fr. Edison Fernandes SDB was the resource person for the same. Through his thought provoking and insightful sessions, the resource person was able to ignite the minds of the participants to think of different and new ways of Vocation Promotion.

Fr. Edison began by stressing on the need for Vocation Promoters and all the confreres to answer some simple basic questions, like – Who am I? /Who are we? How do we as Religious/Salesians make ourselves seen and how do we make others believe that we are authentic followers of Jesus? In the following session, the focus shifted to how we as Salesians can motivate, manage and retain the Generation ’Y’ vocations. The participants then answered a questionnaire which gave them an understanding of themselves and how this could influence their choices and decisions they make as individuals. The Local Vocation Animators, though few, were truly enriched by this half day session.
