CASTILLO GRANDE, Perú - On the 31st of August, 2019, JUMMONT - Juventud Misionera Montfortiana (Montfortian Youth Missionaries) organized a One-day Vocation Camp at the EMAUS Centre in our Parish of San Martin de Porres in Castillo Grande, Huanuco.
The theme for the day was “CHAPA TU VOCACIÓN: Para el camino de tu mision” (DISCOVER YOUR VOCATION: For your mission path). The members of JUMMONT came from two different Montfortian Parishes: San Andres (Saint Andrew) of Huaycan and Nuestra Señora de la Visitacion of Lima (Our Lady of Visitation). After 12 hours of long and tiresome journey from Lima to Castillo Grande, they arrived early in the morning on the 30th of August. It was indeed a joyful day for them because it was their first journey to this parish and they took little time to go around and visit some tourist places. Around 7:30 PM on the same day, we received, with lots of joy and enthusiasm, a group of 14 young men and women who were eager to participate in this One-day Vocation Camp.
On the following day, the weather was pleasant. Around 7:30 AM, the house already started to witness a joyful atmosphere with the presence of 60 young men and women who were accompanied by their professors. Some came from far communities while others came nearby such as Cachicoto, Palo de Acero and others which is more or less a 3-hour trip. Since everything had been set already, around 8:30 AM, we then began the first-ever vocational camp in our parish in Castillo Grande.
The day was well organized with the different themes such as:
1. Artificial Reality
2. The “YES” of Mary
3. Mary, Woman of Faith
4. True Devotion to Mary
5. Your vocation
We gloriously ended our first-ever vocational day around 4:30 PM with lots of joy and happiness. We dispersed to our destination and thanked the Lord and Mother Mary for guiding and being with us throughout the journey.
