‘A Calling For Everyone’ gives an intimate insight into the homes and hearts of people from the Archdiocese of Armagh as they fulfil their calling in life and how they are passing on their faith to their families, friends, communities and future generations. It features personal reflections from ordinary people and demonstrates the extraordinary devotion within the church.
The DVD looks at the different and diverse vocations in life – priesthood, diaconate, religious life, marriage and single life and reminds us that by virtue of baptism everyone has been called to play a part in the life and future of the Church.
“We are looking at the concept of ‘Vocation” in the broadest sense of the word, commented Fr Peter McAnenly, Director of Vocations in the Archdiocese of Armagh.
So often, the word vocation is associated only with priesthood, but the church is changing rapidly and now lay people are being invited to play a much greater role in the life of the church. This initiative outlines some of the roles and how the entire church congregation will benefit.
Commenting on the new DVD, which will be distributed to all parishes, schools and pastoral councils in the Archdiocese, Cardinal Sean Brady stated
“The Church needs lay people more involved in the life of the Church than ever before. We are extending an open invitation to people to become more involved and active in the running of their parishes and churches and we will see a lot more of this in the future
The new DVD which will be rolled out during September 2012.
