The youth convention started on November 6 and will conclude on Sunday, November 13.  

The event will also serve to officially mark the close of the Jubilee Year of Mercy in PNG and Solomon Islands.

The Jubilee Year of Mercy, proclaimed by the Holy Father, Pope Francis, started on 8 December 2015 and officially ends with the closing of the Holy Door at St. Peter’s Basilica, in the Vatican, on 20 November 2016.  

'Life is a precious gift, give it as a gift'

Sr. Carmencita Rodriguez was speaking during a month-long program of vocation awareness and promotion recently.

A vocation is a call from God. It is up to us to respond freely to what God wants us to do as we strive to manifest His glory was the message right throughout the program.

The morning talks during the assemblies, homeroom time, lunch and activity hour were avenues to invite the students to discern God’s call to a consecrated life, married life or the single life.
