Vocations Week


Plans are going well for the forthcoming Vocations Week at Woldingham School. So far we are expecting twenty one full or part-time participants. I'm aware that for many people getting time off work is an issue and so we've decided to let people come along just for the evening if they wish. Dinner is at 6.30pm, after which we will have a bit of a get-together before spending some time in prayer in the Chapel.
I find I have to keep reminding people that it is not a retreat - simply a chance to get away with other men considering a vocation to the priesthood. There will be inputs on various aspects of vocation and priestly ministry, but there will also be ample time for sports and other activities. The Archbishop will be with us for part of the week, and of course there will be priests on hand to chat with anyone about their vocation.
