Catholic Vocations are many and varied. Priesthood, Permanent Diaconate, Religious Life, Ecclesial Women, Single life and Married life are all valid Catholic Vocations. Our paths may be different, but through our Baptism, we are all called by God to journey together. God calls everyone to follow Him - there is no question about that! The question is: how is God calling ME to follow Him? For more information on how to find your calling, visit


The Role of the Vocations Ministry is to:

  • Foster and nurture a “vocation culture” across the Diocese of Broken Bay
  • Foster an awareness and understanding of the specific vocation of Priesthood, Diaconate and Consecrated Life, and encourage men and women to consider these lifestyles as possible and life-giving options for the future
  • Accompany and guide those who are discerning their vocation
  • Support and assist men in exploring a vocation to the priesthood, and women and men exploring a vocation to consecrated life
  • Assist men and facilitate the process of entering the Good Shepherd Seminary
  • Organise events and provide one-on-one advice in discerning the priesthood, diaconate or consecrated life
  • Provide resources for vocations and discernment
