The theme for 2020/21 will be We Are Called. This theme evokes the unique calling that God has for each of us. We know that all of us have a vocation, a specific calling to holiness. God’s callings can be found throughout Sacred Scripture, from the accounts of the prophets to the sending forth of the apostles at Pentecost. The Blessed Mother and other Saints provide us with wonderful examples of how we should discern and accept God’s call in our lives.
