Diocese of Carlisle


All are called.

We are called by God as Christians to play a part in the Church’s mission throughout our daily lives, living out our faith. For some people their vocation is to serve in particular types of ministry.

A vocation is all about hearing your call and responding to it. This may be a calling involving a commitment to charity work, building a lifetime of caring relationships in the community, or becoming part of the ministry within the Church. Over time your vocation can change and develop as your relationship with God grows and deepens.
