The session was facilitated by Sr. Marie Sweet  Candelaria, F.I.  At around 10:30 p.m. the night session ended.

Since some of the participants had important things to attend to, 5 of them left ahead before breakfast.

 The rest of the participants continued with their session with Sr. Marie Sweet which started at 8 a.m. with the topic “Vocation.” She discussed the meaning of “Vocation” and the three specific vocations. Finally, she ended  the session by discussing that "each vocation challenges us to live our faith more deeply  and to follow Christ more closely  and that  is important not to compare the value of different vocations but to appreciate the value of each one and to discover which one is right for you.
