It’s been a busy start to the new year in Hoboken Catholic Academy’s Campus Ministry! We kicked off the new year with the topic of grace.
Our discussion led us to grace being like a seed planted in us by God at our baptisms and how necessary the sacraments and prayer are to help that grace flourish in our lives. The students received their own seeds to bring home and plant.
In recognition of Vocations Awareness Week, we invited Sr Joann Marie Aumond, Pastoral Associate for Spirituality at SPP, and Fr Remo, pastor at St Ann’s Church, to speak about their own religious vocations as a sister and a Franciscan Friar. The students asked them questions ranging from when they wear their habits to their favorite basketball teams. In this Year of Faith, we spent some time last week defining faith and discussing what it looks like in action. The students’ “Faith is…” banner can be seen in the church–please take some time to look at their creative work!
