Vocation means a call. It is God’s invitation to what God calls you to do with your life. Each person is called to know, love and serve God in this life, in order to be happy with Him forever in heaven. Your calling, your vocation flows from the grace of Baptism. Each person's vocation is a different and individual to their gifts and can be lived out through marriage, single life, religious life, or the priesthood.
Ultimately discovering your vocation is a decision made through prayer, but also requires one make an informed decision, including advice from trusted friends, family and spiritual leaders.
Those of St Leo's who have answered the call through the Sacrament of Holy Orders:
