Vocation Stories

The Calling

God calls each one of us, and it is in discovering this call within our lives that we find true happiness. Our vocation or calling is an invitation from God that begins at baptism. When we are baptised, we become sons and daughters of God, and share in the vocation of Jesus to make God known and loved in this world, and to build up God's Kingdom here on earth. Below are a selection of stories from men and women who have discerned their vocation in our Diocese, and are now living out their calling.
