Fr Phil visiting Y5 and Y6 to talk about vocation and commitment
Fr Phil came to visit Year 5 and Year 6 to support them in their learning about ‘Vocation and Commitment’. He talked about how he had always wanted to help others and had started off his career as a trainee solicitor in a busy office in central Liverpool. Fr Phil explained that God called him to be a priest so he could live out his mission of serving others, within a faith community. Fr Phil shared his ordination experience describing it as ‘the best day of my life’. This was an occasion which was shared with his family, friends and the many other people who had supported him on his journey to becoming a priest. Fr Phil explained what vocation and commitment meant to him and how it has shaped him throughout his life. Pupils asked Fr Phil if it was hard to stay faithful to God and to always follow the path God had chosen for him. Fr Phil explained that it wasn’t easy, but he used the power of prayer and his faith in God to support him through any moments he found difficult or challenging. Pupils were given the chance to reflect on this message and to describe and talk about their own experiences of commitment.
