Second Walk with Jesus Downtown set

Families invited to join in event for Vocations


Families interested in vocations or in showing their support for vocations to the priesthood and religious life are being invited to take part in the second annual Walk With Jesus Downtown.

The walk, sponsored by the Vocations Directors of the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay, will be held Saturday, Sept. 30.

It will begin at 1 p.m. at St. Mary of the Angels Church, 645 Irwin St., Green Bay. The 17-block walk will include a stop at St. Willebrord Church, 209 S. Adams St. where priests, brothers and sisters will serve refreshments and make presentations on their vocation.

The walk will end at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral, 140 Monroe St., with a 4 p.m. Mass.

Shuttle buses will be available to transport participants back to St. Mary Church after Mass.

Last year, about 60 priests, religious and lay people took part in the first Walk With Jesus Downtown.

Among the participants last year was a group from the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity in Manitowoc, who carried a large banner for their community.

Other sponsors included the Green Bay Diocese, the Franciscan Friars of Pulaski, the Norbertines and the Bay Settlement Franciscans.

Registration for the walk is not required.
