This coming Saturday, September 5th is the first ever Defeat Hunger 5K obstacle run being sponsored by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Catholic Schools office. In response to Pope Francis’ call to end world hunger by 2025, the Archdiocese has initiated a campaign to provide Food for All by collecting 1,000,000 food donations throughout this school year. This race is just one piece of that campaign and it is the goal to collect 5000 in this one day.
Seminarians for the Archdiocese have stepped up to that call! Nine of our seminarians will be participating in the Defeat Hunger 5K this Saturday and all of them will be in the 11:00 wave of the race! In addition to running to end hunger, they also will be representing the Run for the Call cause. Run for the Call is an initiative to spread the message that every single one of us is called by God to fulfill a definite purpose. Many of those being called are being called to offer their lives entirely to one person in the sacrament of holy matrimony, but some are called to offer their lives entirely to the Church in the consecrated religious life or to the priesthood.
Look for the bright, golden-colored shirts on race day and be reminded of your call! Don’t be afraid to chase after it! (And don’t be afraid to pass up some of the seminarians in the process.) 🙂
