Readers of this blog will be familiar with Vocations Ireland, the umbrella body for the male and female religious vocations directors in Ireland. The organisation has a two-fold purpose: (1) to support and animate the various vocation directors and their congregations and (2) to help discerners who feel called to religious life to find an appropriate congregation or order that suits their talents and gifts. Vocations Ireland has been very active in recent years in promoting the call to religious life and has been particularly successful in its mission to supporting the vocations directors by means of renewal courses, seminars, organised local meetings and liturgical events.
The organisation has recently launched their new website http://www.vocationsireland.com/ and is worth visiting. Congratulations to all concerned and I hope that it will continue to help those who are considering a call to religious life in Ireland.
