Vocation contest winners selected

Six students representing parishes around the Archdiocese of Louisville have been selected winners in the 2019 Vocation Essay and Poster Contest, sponsored by the Serra Club of Louisville and the archdiocese’s Vocation Office.

In the essay contest, students were asked to reflect on and respond to one of two questions. The prompts were:

  • “How can we hear the whisper of God’s call in our loud, modern, American culture?”
  • “What is the importance of family life in fostering a good religious vocation?”

Aubrey Gossom, an eighth-grader who attends St. Catherine School in New Haven, Ky., won first place for her essay.

Avery Powers, an eighth-grader at St. James School in Elizabethtown, Ky., placed second.

And Anthony Pike, an eighth-grader who also attends St. James, placed third. Read their essays here.

For the poster contest, students were asked to reflect on the theme for vocations, “Bringing Christ to Others,” and vocations to priesthood, religious life, marriage or single life and the diaconate.

Lydia Adams, a sixth-grader at St. Albert the Great School, won first place in the poster contest.

Second place was awarded to Ramona Manion, a fifth-grader from St. Joseph School in Bardstown, Ky.

Ava Rager, a fourth-grader who attends religious education at St. John the Apostle Church in Brandenburg, Ky., won third place.

The Vocation Essay and Poster Contest is presented annually to raise awareness about vocations. The Vocation Office welcomes those who are considering a religious vocation to visit its website.

The Serra Club is devoted to supporting and promoting religious vocations.
