CVMA exists to foster a 'vocations culture' that educates people about the nature of vocation and promotes, at a national level, the development of vocations ministry - more ...
Though a bit late in its Greeting, on behalf of Catholic Vocations Ministry Australia, I wish you all the Peace, Blessings and Abundance for the year 2015. Already the year is slipping by!
As each and everyone of us can say our Pope Francis continually surprises us all in what he says and does, so when he named 2015 as the Year of Consecrated Life in some ways it did not come as a complete surprise. I think that what came as a surprise was the fact that this 'directive from on high' indicates that now is the appointed and acceptable time to focus on consecrated life.
During this time then, CVMA will endeavour to focus on aspects of Consecrated Life. We invite you all to share your stories, your reflections, your journeys and we must not forget your photographs. VocNet (our Vocations Magazine) will endeavour to share and resource materials as well. There is even a plan to have "A moment in the day of a Religious and Consecrated Life" pictorial feature in VocNet later on in the year.
As we continue on in our journey and vocation we are presented with a call:
Kind regards and with every Blessing
