BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - More than 50 service groups and religious orders are coming to the University of Mary for an event to help students learn about religious life and missionary work.

The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1RCiGx8 ) reports that the college’s first vocations jamboree begins Wednesday.

Dominick Goettle, a student at the school, says it’s an opportunity not available many places. The event was born after Auxiliary Bishop Robert Barron of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles agreed to visit.

University of Mary Vice President for Public Affairs Jerome Richter says it’s not uncommon for religious orders to contact the school and ask to give presentations to students.

In addition to having booths set up for browsing, there will be individual appointments available. The event is aimed at high school and college students.
