Catholic Life

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'. 

This website aims to support those wanting assistance with the process of discerning a response to this call, discerning 'your' vocation.    Within the Catholic Faith tradition “vocation” generally refers to responding to the "call" to live a consecrated, religious or priestly life.  To this end, this website supports religious perspective of 'vocation',  but not exclusively.  For all of the Catholic Faith tradition who are in the process of discerning their life's call this website offers support for both religious and lay choices.

A Reflection on Life by Pope Francis (2013)

...I have a dogmatic certainty: God is in every person's life.  God is in everyone's life.  Even if the life of a person has been a disaster, even if it is destroyed by vices, drugs or anything else....God is in this person's life.  You can, you must try to seek God in every human life.  Although the life of a person is a land full of thorns and weeds, there is always a space in which the good seed can grow.  You have to trust God...
