Families from around the diocese gathered at St. Mary Church in Upsala April 30 for “The Shepherd is Calling,” a hands-on event held in conjunction with Good Shepherd Sunday. The event, sponsored by the Diocese of St. Cloud Office of Vocation, was geared toward parents and their elementary school-age children with activities to help them learn more about Jesus, the Good Shepherd. Participants were divided into groups to visit activity stations, including a trailer outside to hold and pet sheep; eucharistic adoration led by the Sisters of Mary Morning Star from the Diocese of New Ulm; a “Dress like a Shepherd” craft; seminarians sharing their vocation stories and a skit about Fatima.
