Hello Indiana Catholic runners/walkers! Are any of you doing the Mini Marathon or 500 Festival 5K? If so, or if interested, I'd like to invite you to join Team Vocations. Team Vocations is praying for an increase to Catholic vocations while we train to walk or run in the Mini or 5K. We're also asking for prayer pledges for vocations, for each mile we complete on race day. If you or someone you know is registered for one of these races on May 2nd, and you'd like more info on joining Team Vocations, email firstname.lastname@example.org . The 5K race is still open for registration. You can register on the Mini Marathon website.
Team Vocations participants will be invited to a special Mass and blessing given by the Indianapolis Archbishop on the evening before the race at St. John Catholic Church right next door to packet pick up, followed by a free pasta dinner. It's free to join Team Vocations, you just must be registered for one of the May 2nd races. Participants also receive a free Team Vocations running shirt to wear the day of the race.
Email me also if you're interested in joining a group to do your long runs/walks with on Saturday mornings at a central Indy location. We'd love to have you join us! This was a GREAT experience last year. Great for camaraderie and training encouragement!
Look for a Run for Vocations article in the Criterion either this week or next! God Bless!
