During half term I was very pleased to be able to welcome a number of our seminarians to the Vocations Centre. It is important that our seminarians take the Centre and its work to their hearts, keeping it in prayer and supporting its activities. It was great to see the cameraderie among our students. The almost constant laughter made a good impression on three young men staying here who are considering a priestly vocation. Apart from catching up with essays, the students helped with the ongoing task of sorting out the Centre in order to bring it up to an acceptable standard. It is, of course, already clean and hospitable but there are lots of jobs still to be completed. Of course it wasn't all work and the photograph above was taken during a day out at Canterbury after a visit to the Cathedral - and just before lunch at Wagamamas.
