Akua Run for Vocations 2013

Akua/Run Walk for Vocations in the Year of Faith for February 18, 2013 (President's Day)

By Fr. Pascual Abaya
Director of Vocations

The "Akua Run/Walk for Vocations" 2013 series is a creative way to raise awareness and to strengthen the culture of vocations to the ordained ministry and consecrated life in the Diocese of Honolulu, Hawaii. The 2013 series will be held in conjunction with the Marathons in the islands of Hawaii, namely Honolulu Marathon, Maui Marathon, Kauai Marathon, Kona Marathon, etc. Participants may be priests, sisters, lay people and seminarians who pledge to pray and make an extra mile for vocations.

In conjunction with the celebration of the Year of Faith, anyone who will participate will not only be running for him or herself but will become an advocate of Christ.  Our joint efforts and wearing the uniform for the Run/Walk manifest our journey towards bearers of Good News in the Year of Faith.

If you plan to join one or all of the events, register individually or by group in your parish by going to the event website.  Submit your names and the size of your shirt to the Office of Vocations.
