The concept of Discernment for any vocation is that you do not need to do it entirely on your own in fact the process is likely to be enriched with wider objectivity and thought.
It can cost as much as about £20,000 to train a priest and much less for a Lay Minister – in addition there are costs of supporting people discerning their vocations both at parish and diocesan level.
Financial support for vocations is needed and in Portsmouth Diocese we welcome donations through the Vocations Sunday Collection and also the Living Our Faith campaign.
If you are a tax-payer donations go further with tax relief
If you wish to know more about supporting vocations please feel free to ring Father Mark Hogan on 01256 323595 or click here to email.
