An overview of Vocations

sandhurst seminarians 2018 350px All of us, by virtue of our Baptism, are called to be faithful and active disciples of Jesus Christ. We live out our baptismal call in so many different ways depending on our age and circumstance in life. It can be in our school or university, in our workplace, in our sporting and social activities, in our family, community and Parish involvements. In all these situations, we witness to our faith in Jesus Christ and live out the message of the Gospel.

From amongst his disciples, the Lord calls some to serve in a special way through consecrated Religious Life as Sisters and Brothers and others as Priests. The great majority will be called to the vocations of Married and Single Life.

Upcoming Events

28 Apr
The Gospel of John with Fr Brian Boyle
Date 28.04.2020 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Gospel of John has been famously described as A magic pool in which an infant can paddle and an elephant can swim.” (Prof Frank Moloney SDB).

During Holy Week, on Easter Sunday and during the Easter Season that lead towards Pentecost, we will be listening to the Gospel of John. Composed in stages, decades after the Gospels of Mark, Matthew and Luke, for communities living far from the land where Jesus was born, the Gospel of John was written for people whose faith in Jesus was fragile but growing and others of no faith at all. Although they hadn’t seen or heard Jesus for themselves, they too were on the journey towards being his disciples.

 

Fr Brian Boyle is a priest of the Sandhurst Diocese. He has been trained in the interpretation of scripture and has an ongoing interest in Adult Faith Education and Faith Development. Fr Brian is author of the popular ‘A Friendly guide to the Prophets’.
