Vocation Stories - Fr John Greig

Last edited 15th February 2016

"I knew God wanted me somewhere I just didn't know where. I had the material things but nothing really satisfied me. I had been overseas, seen a bit of the world. I thought at 25 that was a good time in my life to make a decision and I had to choose either the Priesthood or the job and I knew I wanted more than the job. I wanted to see families progress through life, I wanted to baptise children and then see those children get married I wanted to see the progression of life." Fr John Greig

What is My Vocation?

Last edited 25th August 2015

“What should I do with my life?” It’s a question on many hearts, maybe even our own. In this video, Father Mike Schmitz gives some direction that can lead to an answer for ourselves or someone we know. He shares how a vocation is more than just figuring out whether we’re called to married life or religious life, and it’s about more than just finding out what we like to do. As he breaks down three different types of vocation we all have, he draws a practical path we can follow to pursue holiness.
