This week’s new word of the week is ‘vocation’.
One of the Year 6 RE units is all about vocation, so that class were happy to tell the rest of the school that a vocation is when you are called by God to do something. They talked about Father Gabriel coming into school to talk to them about how he was called to become a priest.
Mrs Beer talked about being called to be a teacher. She also said that we might be called to be a peacemaker, a good listener, a good friend or a helper. It’s not just a job title.
As it is May, the month of Mary, Mrs Beer reminded us of when Mary was called to do God’s work by bearing his Son, Jesus. Just as Mary said yes to the Lord, so should we as listen hard to what God is asking us to do.
Your mission this week is to think about what God might be calling you to do. Let us know in the comments below.
