About vocational discernment in our diocese ...


God calls each and every one of us into a relationship with him and it is through this that we can begin to discern our purpose and vocation in life. It is then in the person and vocation of Jesus Christ that we can respond to this call; as St Matthew’s Gospel tells us, “And Jesus said to them, ‘follow me, and I will make you fishers of men’”

VOCATIONAL DISCERNMENT - is God calling you?

All Christians are given a share in Christ’s continuing ministry in the world and the church. This maybe by leading intercessions, pastoral visiting, teaching, Reader ministry, Diaconate, Priesthood, Spiritual Direction, the Religious life, Church Army, being a Churchwarden or by simply living out your Christian witness in your local community.

The Vocations Officer and a team of vocations guides are here to help you explore what this might be for you.
