The first vocations day event in 2009 coincided with the Year of Vocation organised by the Irish church and was a collaborative effort between the four branches of the Dominican family in Ireland - the contemplative nuns, the lay Dominicans, the friars and the apostolic sisters. The original event was an attempt to showcase the Dominican vocation in all its facets to women and men who were interested.
The event has grown year on year and is now in its sixth year. This year's vocation day will once again highlight the particular vocation of all the branches of the Dominican family and will include input on discerning a vocation in today's culture. Testimonies and vocation stories from a sister, nun, friar and lay Dominican will be given in order to give an understanding of each vocation.
As always, the day will be based around prayer, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and the celebration of the Eucharist - the pillars on which Dominican life stand.
