Following Good Shepherd Sunday (the World Day of Prayer for Vocations) the Diocesan Vocations Office is facilitating a series of three Zoom sessions for university students of the Archdiocese of Birmingham - all on the theme of discernment.

Each session runs between 8:00 - 8:45 p.m. and will include a presentation on the life of the beatus (blessed) by a speaker working within university chaplaincy, followed by a time of prayer.

  • Tuesday 10th May - Blessed Carlo Acutis by Mgr. Mark Crisp (Wolverhampton University Chaplaincy)
  • Monday 16th May - Blessed Chiara Badano by Alvea Fernandes (Oxford University Chaplaincy)
  • Thursday 26th May - Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati by Fr. Ray Corbett (Aston University Chaplaincy)

The focus of this series is to help give inspiration, advice and tools for those discerning their own Vocation. The title Quo Vadis? is Latin for 'Where are you going?', which comes from a traditional story of St. Peter meeting Jesus (who appears in a vision) on the road when escaping persecution in Rome. This encounter with the Lord - and asking Him this question - gives Peter the courage to return and to fulfil his ministry in Rome.
