Over the last four days, Br Josh and Br Thuan have been at the Ignite Conference in Redcliffe, Qld. They have been running an expo space at the conference with the help of Fr John Sherman, promoting vocations and the wider Oblate family. The Ignite conference was an amazing experience for them all, with heart-provoking worship and encouraging and informative workshops. The brothers designed many give-aways, including earphones, pamphlets, and even an origami Mary Immaculate for the visitors to the stall to take with them. It was encouraging to see how many young people were committed to their faith and the life of the Church in Australia. There were 1,500 people at Ignite and that is now 1,500 more people who know of the Oblates and their work around Australia. The brothers were particularly delighted with the help of staff and students from St Eugene’s College and parish in Burpengary. From helping them with set-up to promoting the Oblates all around the conference, they were truly apart of our Oblate family and mission.
Let us continue to pray for vocations in Australia and for our continued mission here.
