Pastoral care of vocations


From the latin word « vocare » which means “to be called”.  The vocation indicated most of the time the style of life that a Christian chose

married, priest, monk, men and women religious, celibate.   But the vocation is the fate of all the Christians in all the moments of their life.  A Christian is called without ceasing by Jesus to follow Him and to imitate Him.

The pastoral care  of vocations 

For all the baptized, the Christian life consist to be more attentive without ceasing to the call that God addressed to him personally, and to bring a response to this call. We are invited to enter in the communion with God and it is in this that consist the fundamental and common vocation to Holiness.  

The pastoral care of vocations in the Society of Apostolic Life Donum Dei has the goal to stimulate a culture of the calling as a responsibility of all the members, to awaken the youth to the call of God.


3rd meeting of the Youth Pastoral care of vocations

     Our 3rd meeting of the Youth Pastoral care of vocations on May 8, 2022 is favourable because it is also in union with the whole Church who celebrated on this day the 59th Day of Prayers for Vocations.  It is also the Good Shepherd Sunday who invites us to have confidence in Him and nothing will be lacking in us.  (cf. Ps 22).

      « I am happy to be able to know a friend in Heaven, the Blessed Carlo Acutis.  I did not know that it is possible to be an apostle of Jesus on the web.  I was touched by his love for Jesus and his devotion to Jesus in the Eucharist.  I will try to go to mass on Sundays and to love Jesus more sincerely.  » Pauline

       « I am happy to follow this formation and to participate in this meeting.  This gives me light and strength to live everyday. ».  Aya

       « The life of Carlo Acutis has touched me a lot. From now on, I will remember him and asked him to help me to progress in my life with Jesus.  We hope that in our 4th meeting; we will be more numerous because we are all invited to come with a friend. » Alexandra
