Vocations Blog - Fr. Charles Johnson, O.P.
Christ’s peace! I am Fr. Charles Johnson, O.P., Fr. Charlie, new Director of Vocations for the Dominican province of St. Martin de Porres. As I am just getting started, my blog site is a little empty. However, keep in touch as I will soon be posting new items of interest. Currently, I am finishing up service as chaplain and director of the Catholic Center at Tulane University in New Orleans. Little by little, I am beginning my new service to the Church through promotion of vocations to the Dominican Order. Our Church needs Dominicans to preach the Good News of Christ to a world in serious need of God’s mercy. Are you up to such a great task and mission? Stay tuned ……. Look forward to hearing from you. God bless, Padre Charlie
If you are thinking about attending a Dominican Experience Weekend (DEW), I want to encourage you to! I wanted to share with you this email that I received today. Hello Fr. John, I appreciate you having me this weekend at the priory for the Dominican Experience Weekend! Compared to the vocational retreat I did with the Diocese back in ’09, I loved all the small, personal times we had to chat and ask questions. I especially loved just getting to have meals and see the other friars interact with each other. It’s crazy to me that I was only there for a weekend, but already I really want to visit when I visit my friends in Dallas in a few weeks. I feel like the whole experience was the perfect spark in renewing my spiritual life and discernment. Thank you so much for all your hard work and service! God bless, -Patrick
