Description

Jesus calls everyone to a particular vocation. Not just Peter and the Apostles, but you. Perhaps you are looking for help to make up your own mind, or you want to understand and encourage a relative or friend who feels a call. Perhaps you are seeking help to open your heart to accept your son’s or daughter’s vocation, or maybe you are one of the many members of the Church concerned about the apparent lack of vocations we are suffering, and you want to see if you can do something about it. Peter on the Shore is an attempt to look at vocation through a lens of Scripture and real life, and to help bring clarity to Christ’s call.
