Campus Ministry is holding its fourth annual Vocations and Post-Graduation Fair on Wednesday, Feb. 20, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in Haggar Foyer. The fair brings students considering religious life or ministry into contact with a wide variety of religious orders and ministry groups.
"This is a chance for students to see what opportunities the Church offers after graduation," said UD Campus Minister Scott Chuchla. "Every kind of order from contemplative Carmelites to charismatic orders will be attending. In addition, representatives from various long-term service organizations, such as Notre Dame programs Alliance for Catholic Education and Echo, through which students can work for churches and Catholic schools during the year while pursuing a master's degree at Notre Dame during the summer, will be present."
Twenty-seven religious orders and missionary and ministry organizations will attend the fair. Many of the 22 orders attending will remain on campus for a 7 p.m. Holy Hour in the Church of the Incarnation and a question and answer vocations panel beginning at 8:30 p.m. in upstairs Haggar. Students interested in religious life as a vocation are invited to attend the panel.
Last year's event, which brought 16 religious orders to campus, packed Haggar Foyer with interested students.
"As far as I know, it's the only event of its kind in the Metroplex," said Chuchla, who has invited other campus ministry groups in the area to attend.
