What is Vocation?

Campus Ministry

“Vocation” is one of those catch-all words that can be used in many different contexts. Most often we hear the word used to describe someone's career aspirations or direction in life.

Boston College’s Jesuit Catholic tradition is rooted in the idea that God is always calling us to something more, something different, something that is authentic to our being and to who God has made us to be. And, while all Christians are called to live out the command of their baptism to go forth and be disciples, a smaller group take on a deeper calling of service to Christ and the Church. This can take many forms, particularly to the priesthood, religious life for women and men, and lay ecclesial ministry.

We invite you to take a moment and consider to what vocation is God calling you?

Here at Manresa House, we are concerned with helping students consider and discern where they feel God might be leading them in life. So, wherever you are on the journey, know that we are here as a resource.
