Welcome to the Vocations Office

Supporting all members of our community who are searching for ways to act on their calling from God

A message from Fr Israel Quirit, Vocations Director

On behalf of Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB and the Archdiocese of Perth, it is with great pleasure that I share with you our work in supporting our brothers, sisters, families, and communities on nurturing, strengthening and enriching their Vocations.

Our commitment to cultivate a culture of vocation is based on Jesus’ mandate to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations” (Mt 28:19) and “Do this in remembrance of me” (Lk 22:19; cf. 1 Cor 11:24). While this commitment is, in part, motivated by a serious shortage of priests, at a deeper level it flows from the understanding that the call to holiness is fundamental to all Christians.

Through this commitment, our Vocations Office and Committee are here to support anyone seeking a mature relationship with Christ, suitable for the priesthood/ordained ministry or religious life, and to be able to make their particular contribution to the wider community.

We look forward to meeting you and supporting your Vocations journey.

Life to the full

Vocations is a call to holiness, or sanctification, or more simply faithfulness, is a call to love: to love God and to love our neighbour. The particular pathway where we live out this call to love is our vocation – in single life, marriage, priesthood/ordained ministry, religious life, or other life endeavours

Vocations resources

We invite everyone within our community to access the following resources – stories, presentations, personal accounts, and more – to help nurture your vocation – God’s call to love. 

Get involved, get connected,
get in touch!

The Vocations Office is here to support the nurturing of God’s call to love each other that exists in each of us. The Office offers presentations to schools, universities, groups whilst also holding community events for anyone to join.
