The Hands of Service and Fostering Vocations

One of the inspirational texts of our founding, St. John Paul II’s Familiaris Consortio, proclaims that “the family that is open to transcendent values…and is aware of its daily sharing in the mystery of the glorious Cross of Christ, becomes the primary and most excellent seed-bed of vocations to a life of consecration to the Kingdom of God.”  We see this truth bearing fruit at Regina Mater through the Lanicek family.

Mrs. Lanicek is one of our “golden educators”, teaching at Regina Mater since 2008. She sees her job as a vocation at home to her two children and to her multi-age classroom of 40 children from ages six through ten. Mr. Lanicek faithfully goes to daily mass and is in formation to become a Deacon in March, 2019.  The Laniceks joyfully serve in their parish St. Albert the Great Catholic Church while serving meals to families through Meals on Wheels.

Two of our eight male high school students plan on entering the seminary; others have attended days of discernment.  A number of our young ladies also have expressed interest in vocations with the Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary (our founder’s order).

We invite you to join us in sharing the joy of faith and fostering service in more children, men and women.
