In November 2018, our school invited and met many people who shared their vocation with us. There were many different vocations where people have been called to serve God in many different ways.
Year 3 and 6 were very lucky to receive a visit from Fr Terin (our new parish priest) who explained that all of us have a vocation. It isn't just something that happens in the future, but something that is taking place right at this very minute. Both Year 3 and 6 came away from their visit with the knowledge of how their preparation for the sacrament of Holy Communion and Confirmation was a holy vocation for them at this time.
Throughout the visits during the Vocations week, many of the visitors who came in witnessed their faith through their vocation. From paramedics to engineers, from priests to beauticians, we met people who believe that their actions as a job allow them to bear witness to their faith.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable week and the children have been able to come away from the experience with the opportunity to really evaluate their purpose in life and think about their own future.
