Secondary School Vocation Day
This post is simply to ask your prayers for the forthcoming Vocations Day at one of our diocesan secondary schools. It's an important occasion for us as it's the first time we've put together a Vocations Day for this age group. In the past we've attended and given presentations at Careers Events but this will be more like a retreat day for the children of Year 10.
The team consists of some Friars of the Renewal who will speak on recognising God's love. One of the Friars used to be a layman in the local parish so it will be good for the youngsters to meet him. There will also be two sisters from the Little Sisters of the Poor who will speak about love in action. A married couple will talk about the commitment needed to follow Christ. I'll be with one of our seminarians for a presentation on discerning the call and, of course, a viewing of 'Fishers of Men.
In the afternoon we will have an open forum when the young people can fire questions at a panel. We will finish the day with the celebration of Holy Mass.
I'm looking forward to it - but its success will depend on how much we pray, so please keep it in your prayers.
