Catholic Vocations

Responding to “the call”.

Vocation within the context of Catholic Life means “call” –  responding to what God calls each of us to be, or to do, with our lives. Each person is called to discern their response to ‘God’s call’.  Will it be; Marriage? Priesthood? Religious Life? Consecrated Life?  Single Life?  We are all called by God to know, love and serve him in the daily routine of our lives. The difference is how each one responds to that ‘call’.
