Friars in the United States receive formation and reflect upon a culture which promotes vocations

The main concern of this course has been the continuous search to update and improve upon the promotion of vocations. It has taken place in Santa Ana, California with five religious implicated in this pastoral work in attendance.
From the 7th to the 10th of November, the Parish of Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe in Santa Ana, California religious who normally work in promoting vocations in the United States met together. They were joined by the vocations promoter in Querétaro (Mexico) who organized the event.

The bases were put in place for vocations promotion as a team, something particularly relevant given the context and circumstances of the ministries of the Augustinian Recollects in the United States. This as well as the upcoming union of the provinces of San Agustín and San Nicolás de Tolentino. Particular reference was also made to a Vocational Culture as something urgent in terms of training in this area.

This course was prepared by Fabían Martín, who for many years has worked and studied in the field of vocations and especially the idea of a Vocational Culture. This is in fact now becoming a model for the promotion of vocations in the Church and within the Augustinian Recollect Family.

The course has offered a general outline on what can be done within the context of vocations in the United States short and medium term. It has also relied on models, examples and materials from vocational formation in other places within the Augustinian Recollect Family.

The course has ended with a series of reflections about the Augustinian Recollect charisma. In particular, what this implies for the presence of Religious and ministries within the context of a migrant population with very diverse and important changes taking place. Correctly understood they are, at the same time, a source of much richness both pastorally and socially.
