Sister Joellen Kohlmann and the Sierra Vista, AZ group numbered among the winners. First place seminarian, first place children and second place for girls were all proud members of St. Andrew’s Parish. Sister Mary Ann Spanjers and Sister Monica Martin representing San Xavier Mission and San Miguel High School also witnessed in the crowd. Black shirts were given to priests, seminarians and all religious of the congregations represented in the diocese. Others received white shirts so that colorful paints could vividly powder the fabric.
Father Jorge Farias Soucedo, diocesan vocation director, was the main organizer of the gathering. After the walk/run of witnessing to vocations, a Mass was celebrated in Reid Park to pray for this intention. May the Lord bless the Diocese of Tucson and the Franciscan Sisters with strong and courageous witnesses to the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
