During this second coexistence of the 2022-2023 academic year, "the style of vocational animation was that of patient sowing, which has a lot to do with preparing the land, depositing the seed and carefully accompanying its growth." To this end, activities were organized to promote friendship, fraternity and community life among students.

The coexistence began with an opening prayer, in which the mission and vocation of the baptized were stressed. Subsequently, each of the attendees experienced a dynamic of inner and personal knowledge, which allowed them to come into contact and tune in with some biblical figures such as Abraham and Moses.

Then, Brother Isaac Almaraz, vocations promoter from Mexico-Central, introduced himself and explained details of his mission as vocations facilitator, briefly explaining his work and experience as an Augustinian Recollect friar.

On the other hand, during this coexistence, the importance of the community was also highlighted, seeking to increase in them the sense of identity as a group and the development of a future friendship, despite the difference in ages and personal conditions. To this end, sports activities, personal and group knowledge were encouraged, as well as sharing food together.

The day concluded with a final prayer.
