2017 Race for Vocations team is now accepting new members

The archdiocesan Race for Vocations team is still accepting new members among those who will participate in the One America 500 Festival Mini-Marathon and the Finish Line 500 Festival 5K, which will take place in Indianapolis on May 6.

To sign up for the Race for Vocations team or for more information, visit www.raceforvocations.org. People already registered for the Mini or 5K can join the team. At the time of publication, registration for the Mini and 5K were also still open for new registrants.

By wearing special T-shirts during the events, team members promote awareness that God has given each person a vocation. They also pray for vocations during their training and during the Mini or 5K, and invite others to join them in prayer.

Those who wish to support team members along the courses can join cheer blocks. Prayer pledges can also be posted on the team’s website.

Team members and other vocations supporters are invited to participate in a Mass for Vocations at 6:30 p.m. on May 5 at St. John the Evangelist Church, 126 W. Georgia St., in Indianapolis. A pasta dinner will follow the Mass in a tent in St. John’s parking lot. Sign up for the pasta dinner on the team’s website.

Team members are invited to gather after finishing the Mini or 5K at a team tent at Military Park, 601 W. New York St., in Indianapolis. †
