Each year a highlight on the Vocation Brisbane calendar is the Archbishop's Annual Vocations Dinner. The Dinner draws young men from parishes, schools, movements and communities around the Archdiocese. Gathered around the dinner table, the men had the unique opportunity to hear from those further along the vocation path.
Archbishop Mark Coleridge shared insights from his many years of ministry as priest and bishop. He shared candidly with the men about the importance of prayer in his daily routine. The Dinner allows each man to meet and interact with the Archbishop, beginning the ongoing relationship between bishop and discerner.
Seminarian Thomas Zaranski was also on hand to share insight about seminary life and the four pillars of formation. Currently own his fifth year at the seminary and on pastoral internship at Camp Hill, Tom's presence was relevant and insightful as he approaches ordination.
For many of the men, the evening is their first interaction with Vocation Brisbane. During the Dinner the men were introduced to the team and the discernment resources and opportunities made available through the office. In presenting his own experiences as a priest for 25 years, Fr Morgan offered support and direction to the men as they begin their own discernment journeys.
Held annually at the Archbishop's residence Wynberg, the Dinner is a significant vocations promotional event. The Dinner is by invite-only. To register interest in the next Archbishop's Vocations Dinner, please contact the Vocation Brisbane office.
