The term ‘vocation is derived from vocare, meaning ‘to call’. Every Christian, through their baptism, is called to holiness and to mission as a committed follower of Jesus Christ.

However, as Christians we are also invited by the Lord to live the call to holiness in particular ways, or vocations. Discernment is the process of discovering and exploring the vocation to which the Lord is inviting you.
