What is a Vocation?
A vocation is God's invitation or calling to each individual to love and serve Him and His Church in a particular state or way of life.
Each person's freedom lies in discovering his vocation and in generously responding to it.
"Life is God's Gift to us...
...what we make of it is our gift to God."
