Fr. John Zagarella, pt. 2: Affiliate period

Hello, Folks. As I promised last week, I’ll continue my Vocation story with my entrance into our Affliate Program. In those days, we lived in a house no longer on the Abbey grounds called Emmaus. I lived there for a year with another Affiliate and our Director, Fr. Thomas Rossi. It was a great experience! We had a terrific opportunity to get to know the Order up close and personal, and at the same time, have enough “space” to continue our process of discernment.

One of the things I enjoyed the most was hearing the Vocation stories of many of the Professed members of the Community. I loved hearing the ways God’s call came to each man in different ways through different people, places and event, yet all were called to Daylesford Abbey. Until next week, keep listing for God’s call in your life!

Blessings,
Fr. John
