Priesthood / Diaconate

Making a choice about the life you choose to live is an important decision. There are many different options and possibilities you may be thinking about: the type of job you’d like, the area of study you’d prefer, the person you’ll choose to spend your life with, the contact you’ll develop with God and Church, the way you will live your beliefs  into action.

The word vocation comes from the Latin word vocare which means ‘to call’.  Everybody has a calling. It is what God calls us to do with our lives.  Our life or our career becomes our vocation when we follow it through in God’s name.

…. Where is God calling you?
