Every year the fourth Sunday of Easter (also known as Good Shepherd Sunday) is a worldwide day of prayer for vocations. It is also an opportunity for everyone to reflect on their own specific calling, whether that is to priesthood, religious life, another form of consecration, marriage or single life.
This year the World Day of Vocations is on Sunday 3 May. In his message for the day, which is inclusive of all vocations in the Church, Pope Francis reflects on the Gospel of Jesus inviting Peter to walk on the water (Matthew 14:22-33). Click here to read the message in full.
If you are wondering where God might be calling you, please have a look at our discernment programmes. They are designed to be followed over 6 weeks. Lead Thou Me On covers all vocations while A Still Small Voice is specifically for women discerning a vocation to Carmel.
