Year 6 were fortunate enough to receive a visit from Deacon Owen today to talk to them about vocations.
The afternoon began with Year 6 showing off all they already knew about vocations before Deacon Owen helped to fill in some blanks and take their understanding to a deeper level.
We discussed the roles of sisters, deacons and priests before meeting Sister Erin, Deacon Charlie and Father William to learn the difference between these vocations.
Deacon Owen was so impressed – as was I – with not only the children’s thoughtful and reflective responses to questioning but also the maturity of the questions they were asking.
We learnt that the talents and gifts that God gave us will help us to decide which way God is calling us to serve Him.
