Jesuit Bishop To Speak On Vocations

The Diocese of Youngstown Vocation Office is sponsoring “How to Find the Love of Your Life,” two Young Adult Discernment days, Oct. 3, at the University Parish Newman Center in Kent and Oct. 10 at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish Center in Austintown.

Both days will focus on helping young adults, age 18 and older, begin to discern and discover God’s call to a particular state in life, marriage, single life, ordained priesthood or consecrated life.

Bishop George V. Murry, S.J. Bishop of Youngstown, will be the keynote speaker at both events.

There also will be presenters on each state in life. The events also will include time for prayer, reflection, opportunities for individual consultations, music and multimedia presentations on the primary states in life.

The days begin at 10 a.m., include lunch and refreshments, and conclude with the celebration of the Sunday Vigil liturgy.

Register online or by telephone and pay $6 at the door. Registration at the door is $10. To register online, go to, click on the eCommunity tab and look for the “Discernment Day Form.”

For telephone registration, call the Diocese of Youngstown at (330) 744-8451 and ask for Geri Deane, ext. 329.
