Invocation exists solely to support the Catholic Church in helping young Catholics to listen, discern and respond to the call of Christ in their lives, fostering vocations to diocesan priesthood and religious life, and by forming intentional disciples as part of the new evangelisation
Is there a need?
Young Catholics living in today’s society need to be accompanied and directed by informed, inspiring and experienced guides; priests and religious, educators from our Catholic schools, youth leaders, witnesses from within parish communities and from within their own families. Young people seek an abundance of opportunities; to encounter the Lord, for discernment, formation, catechesis and fellowship, all within the right environments, and they want to develop and be equipped with the right tools so as to listen, discern and respond to the call of Christ in their lives.
Meeting the need?
Invocation seeks to form experienced and inspiring leaders in discernment. It endeavors to provide the right tools, and it seeks to provide the best opportunities within the right environments for young people to listen, discern, and respond to the call of Christ in their lives. It does this by supporting and enhancing the work of other agencies and groups in providing outstanding practice across these key areas where it already exists. Furthermore, Invocation strives to seek out and develop new ideas and ways forward to meet the vision of what would help young people.
