Run for the Call is going to be pretty active over the next couple of months. First of all, as we begin this season of Lent, it is our hope that more and more people will take on as a special Lenten discipline to sacrifice and pray for our seminarians and for all vocations by joining our Run for the Call marathon team. The more team members we get praying for vocations, the more powerfully the call to religious life may enter the hearts who God is calling. Let us change hearts this season, together with God’s grace!
On Saturday, March 5th Run for the Call will be spending time with hundreds of men from the greater Cincinnati area at the E6 Catholic Men’s Conference at East Central High School in St. Leon, IN. Come join us and be challenged and inspired by talks by Christopher West, Mark Houck, and Fr. John Hollowell! We will be exploring St. Paul’s exhortation to “Put on the armor of God” (Eph. 6:11-17) and all that entails as Catholic men.
The very next Saturday, on March 12th, the Serra Club of Sidney/St. Mary’s will be hosting the 3rd Annual Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser for the benefit of Run for the Call. All those families in the North who are great Run for the Call supporters, mark your calendars and make a trip out to St. Remy Hall in Russia, OH from 5-7pm. There is no cost to the meal, but donations are encouraged. Carryout is available!
Finally, before we get to the actual Flying Pig race weekend, on Saturday, April 9th young adult groups from all over the city are coming together once again to plan our 5th Annual Young Adult Square Dance at Annunciation in Clifton. The family friendly dance will run from 6-11pm (with Mass being offered at 5:00 at Annunciation) with live square dance callers, Gregg and Jenny Schmitmeyer and a live DJ. Admission for the evening is just $5 for anyone 10 and over or a maximum of $20 per family.
So, come out and celebrate with us and help us show our support for our seminarians!
And don’t forget, if you join our team, you’ll get the Early Bird Registration price all the way through the beginning of April. Just sign up today and we’ll send you the team discount code!
