Accompaniment Program – is a program of the Columban Fathers’ Vocation Ministry for young people who are discerning their Vocation in life.

Why do we have this program?

  • The program aims to help young people in need of vocation discernment to understand, develop and find out the calling of God in their lives.
  • The Vocations Team will provide support, guidance and friendship with each of the vocation searchers in their journey towards discovering their own vocation.
  • Participating in this program allows vocation searchers the opportunity to develop further their relationship with God, one another and themselves. This will hopefully give them a deeper sense of their own understanding of their Faith in God and God’s care for them.
  • It will help develop their skills, talents and self confidence as persons called by God.

What will vocation searchers receive from the Program?

  • Awareness of themselves and others through vocation seminars.
  • Guidance in their life’s journey.
  • An understanding of their Faith and the particular Vocation they are called to.
  • A better sense of who they are as beloved children of God.
