Vocation Sunday

Each year throughout the Church one Sunday is dedicated to Vocation. In 2017  Vocation Sunday is on 7 May and the Church of England produces 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
