Welcome to the Single Life section.
What does it mean to be single?
The single life.
People are single for many different reasons. If you are single at this moment, whatever the reason, you can believe that your life right now has immense value. Every person is called to a life of holiness, and in this sense every person who is single is called to live out their Christian vocation, wherever it might be leading them in the future. Your work, your study, your friendships, your care for your family, your service to others – these are all areas of life in which you are meeting Christ and bringing his love to others. Give thanks to God for your life and for the opportunities presented to you.
If you have any immediate concerns, feel that there could be more to your life or other questions please contact your parish priest or click here
Also available are some answers to or reflections on questions such as:
- I am searching to make a lifelong commitment to marriage or priesthood or the consecrated life, but which one?
- How do I reconcile being single not through choice but through circumstances?
- If I am happy being single does that need to be a life-long vocation?
