Special Event - Deacon Owen's Vocation Assembly

20 January 2020

On Monday, 20th January, Deacon Owen Gresty talked to the children in Assembly about how God calls us all in different ways. God wants us to be happy in our lives. He explained about the importance of vocations in our lives.

We were reminded about how John the Baptist was called to be a messenger to tell everyone about the coming of Jesus and the important job of baptizing Jesus. The children were very quick to recognize the story of Jesus being baptized from Deacon Owen’s lego building.

Deacon Owen spoke about Saint John Henry Newman special prayer of how we are all called to do a special Job. We are called to serve and we are a link in the chain. Saint John Henry is a good role model and demonstrated real saint qualities.

God wants us to be happy and he has a plan for all of us. Some of us have special gifts and God wants us to use them to serve one another and be the best we can be. Living out our mission is very important and most of all God wants us all to be happy.

Deacon Gresty gave us a special blessing at the end of the assembly.
