Great Idea: A Traveling Statue

A Traveling Statue (National Vocation Awareness Week, first week November)

Because the need for vocations is great, our school has partnered with the parish community in establishing a vocations awareness program involving a traveling statue. A small statue of St. Jude, our namesake, travels from classroom to classroom each month as the class offers prayers for religious vocations. The statue is formally presented to each class at a school Mass. It has become a constant reminder to students and teachers of our commitment to praying for vocations.
