"Dear young friends: only Jesus knows what “definite service” he has in mind for you. Be open to his voice resounding in the depths of your heart: ... he needs priests, good and holy priests, men who are willing to lay down their lives for their sheep. Ask our Lord what he has in mind for you! Ask him for the generosity to say “yes!” Do not be afraid to give yourself totally to Jesus. He will give you the grace you need to fulfil your vocation". Pope Benedict XVI, Hyde Park, September 2010
Each year Southwarkvocations offers a number of activities for young people under 18 years of age to discover more about the life and work of a priest. In particular we hold a termly get-together which we call a 'Discovering Priesthood Day'. The event is usually hosted or attended by one of our bishops and a number of priests are also on hand to help look after the activities.
This year there will be three 'Discovering Priesthood Days'. They will take place on the following Saturdays:
10th February - at the Holy Ghost
23rd June - venue to be confirmed
29th September - at the Hermitage, West Malling.
