A Year of Promotion and Prayer

Over the last 12 months the Irish Church has marked the Year of Vocation.

Note the word vocation is in the singular. Why? Because the aim of the Year of Vocation was to raise awareness of the common vocation that we all share through baptism as expressed through witness, love and service.

Within each of these themes and throughout 2008-2009, the specific vocations of marriage, the religious life, the single life and priesthood was highlighted and promoted.

A key objective of this years initiative was for the vocation message to reach as wide an audience as possible so that people would be challenged to discern and explore their own specific vocation in life.
