A Profession refers to the career that one opts for or chooses. It may involve training and the acquisition of special skills before one can become eligible for a specific job. Vocation, however, is the innate ability in an individual towards a particular occupation. The Christian Vocation requires us to be first and foremost faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. As the baptized we are called to prayer, worship and witness. The ministry of the Lay Person is to present Christ and His church, and to bear witness to him in our daily lives.
