A Time to Consider Christ's Call

The annual Southwark Vocations week began as an initiative of the Archbishop two years ago importing to Southwark what had already been his practice in Northampton.
The week is an opportunity for our seminarians, seekers, and those interested in priesthood to come together in a relaxed atmosphere. Holy Mass is celebrated each day and there is ample time for prayer. There are also talks on a variety of topics, and 'get-togethers' after each meal where we develop our speaking and listening skills by inviting one of those present to talk about their life or something that may interest them.
The Vocations Week is not a retreat. It is a time of relaxation and friendship which provides us with an opportunity to spend more time considering Christ's call.
