Vocation to pastoral work

Not only priests and religious individuals can be pastoral caregivers. Every Christian is called to proclaim the Word of God and be there for others. In many parts of the world, there are opportunities to work in pastoral care with a theological education - in a parish or in a specific field of evangelization, such as youth ministry or pastoral care for the sick.

You will be supported financially by the Church and dedicate your whole life to the faith. You will work in a team with volunteers, priests, and many other people.

  • How do I know if I am called to marriage and family?
    Die Berufung zur Ehe und Familie wird oft durch eine tiefe Sehnsucht nach Liebe, einem Verlangen nach einem Leben in Gemeinschaft und dem Wunsch erkennbar, Kinder zu haben. Gebet, Reflexion und geistliche Begleitung können dir helfen, deine Berufung besser zu verstehen.
  • Is it bad if I'm in a relationship without being married?
    As Catholics, we believe in the sacred significance of marriage as a lifelong covenant before God. It is a sacrament based on love, fidelity, and commitment. However, that does not mean that having a relationship without being married is inherently "wrong." Each of us follows our own path and experiences different phases in life. It is important to act respectfully and responsibly in relationships. If you are in a relationship, you should consider your values and beliefs and ensure that your relationship is characterized by love, honesty, and mutual respect.
  • What role does faith play in marriage and the family?
    Faith plays a central role in marriage and family life. It is important for couples and families to pray together, receive the sacraments, and live out their faith in their daily lives. Faith provides strength, guidance, and the ability to overcome challenges.
  • If I choose marriage and family, can I achieve my personal goals and dreams?
    The decision to enter into marriage and start a family does not mean that you have to give up your personal goals and dreams. Instead, it is an invitation to share your dreams with your spouse and together build a fulfilling and meaningful future.
  • What can I do if I'm in a relationship and feel a calling to marriage?
    Marriage is a lifelong commitment based on unconditional love and fidelity. If you are already in a relationship, it is important to have an open and honest conversation with your partner about whether you both share this vision. You can pray together and engage in activities within the Church to gain clarity on whether you are on the same path ... ... and then, have the courage to take the next step!
