RE:

LO: We all have a mission in life

God calls each of us to a particular vocation in life. ‘Vocation’ means ‘calling’. Some people’s vocation is to marriage, the single life or religious life. These are the laity. Some people’s vocation is to ordination as a deacon, priest or bishop. Within these vocations, there are many different ways of living out the mission of Jesus day by day. Each one has an important but different role in the mission of the Church.

Through the sacrament of Baptism, all Christians are called to share in the mission of Jesus. There are many different ways of carrying out this mission.

Task: Think about people that contribute to the world in a positive way. This could be people you know personally, famous people, or professions. Think about how they help the world using their gifts from God, and carry out their mission. Remember: a mission is a purpose, goal, or desire to achieve something in life.

Answer these questions in one full paragraph:
