Did you know? (Sunday, October 2, 2022)

The idea of vocation is central to the Christian belief that God has created each person with gifts and talents oriented toward specific purposes and a way of life. Vocation is especially associated with a divine call to service to the Church and humanity through life commitments such as marriage, consecration as a religious, ordination to the priestly ministry and a commitment to a holy life as a single person. In the broader sense, Christian vocation includes the use of one’s gifts in their profession, family life, church and civic commitments for the sake of the greater common good.
