What is a Vocation?
In the simplest terms, “vocation” means a “call.” In general terms your vocation is what God calls you to do with your life. Everyone is called to know, love and serve God in this life, in order to be happy with him forever in heaven. Yet each one does this in a different, individual vocation such as marriage, religious life, priesthood or the single life.
Ultimately discovering your vocation is a decision made through prayer, but also requires one to make an informed decision, including advice from trusted friends, family and spiritual leaders. This page provides resources to those who may be considering a call to the consecrated, religious or priestly life.
