Every Christian has a vocation – something you are called to be or do.

Revd Sonia Barron, Diocesan Director of Ordinands and Vocations, has launched a series of videos for a Season of Vocations in the diocese, beginning on Vocations Sunday (Sunday 3rd May 2020), to help you explore what that might be.

Beginning with an introductory video about calling she introduces three priests in training to be ordained (ordinands).

Here is an introduction to Vocations Sunday:
