 The Great Vocations Conversation

You are invited to join in The Great Vocations Conversation - a commitment to speak to at least one person per month about God's calling in their lives.

Vocation - God's Calling - is for everyone. We all need to have conversations, share our story and chat to others about who God is calling us to be, and what God might be calling us to do. This work is vital to ordained and lay ministry.

To play your part in encouraging others, sign up to this national project and you will receive devotional resources to inspire and enable your conversations.

For more information about vocations in this diocese contact ellie.clack@covcofe.org
