It is derived from the Latin word vocare meaning "to call".
Vocation is not limited to callings to the priesthood or other church-related roles. Likewise, Vocation can include (but is certainly not limited to) one's career.
The Vocations we will be examining this semester are:
- Religious Life
- Permanent Diaconate (Deacons)
- Committed Single Life
Finally, every vocation develops through stages, and all share five of these in common:
- Challenges / Sacrifice
We will discuss each stage in detail, beginning next time with Discernment. Until then,
