Bishop Malooly, the Office of Priestly and Religious Vocations and the Office for Catholic Schools hosted the Third Annual Vocations Day at Holy Cross Parish in Dover, Nov. 9
The event, attended by more than 500 sixth-graders from 17 Catholic schools in the diocese, included a keynote address by Rev. Mr. Rich Jasper, a transitional deacon for the Diocese of Wilmington. Nov. 9 was picked because it’s during Vocations Awareness Week, Nov. 6-12.
In addition to the main presentation, Bishop Malooly along with priests, religious sisters and brothers also talked to the sixth-grade students about their vocations and answered questions about priestly and religious life during smaller group sessions.
