Everyday Calling, Vocations Day 2022. Has God been tapping you on the shoulder recently?

We're becoming increasingly aware in the Church of the importance of every Christian discovering what their particular ministry and vocation is, and one of the signs of a healthy worshipping community is that everyone in the church family - lay or ordained - sees themselves as having a vital part to play in the life and mission of the church and wider community.   Later this month, we are holding a diocesan vocations day, as an opportunity for people to explore their sense of calling - particularly if you've become aware of God ‘tapping you on the shoulder' recently.
