The Diocese of New Westminster is taking steps to actively promote vocations to diaconal and priestly ministry. This active promotion aligns with our desire as Christian people to be faithful servants of the Lord, ensuring that all those who sense a call have the opportunity to explore and discern that call potentially leading to ordained ministry in Christ’s Church.
For a day dedicated to the topic of Divine Call.
Parish clergy interested in encouraging vocations also welcome
Let us know you are coming by contacting the Venerable Bruce Morris or by calling the Synod Offices at 604.684.6306.
Discovering Vocation does not mean scrambling toward some prize just beyond my reach
but accepting the treasure of true self I already possess.
Vocation does not come from a voice ‘out there’ calling me to be something I am not.
It comes from a voice ‘in here’ calling me to be the person I was born to be,
to fulfill the original selfhood given me at birth by God.
