Vocation Sunday

Each year throughout the Church, one Sunday is dedicated to Vocation. The Church of England has produced some excellent resources on www.vocationsunday.org  

In a sense every or any Sunday is a time to celebrate Vocation, so the resources are suitable for whenever they can be helpful in promoting where God is calling
