Invocation Festival

From our diocesan vocations site
Invocation is a forthcoming national discernment festival for young adults which will be held in the grounds of St. Mary’s College, Oscott Birmingham from July 2nd – 4th 2010. The festival is being hosted by the Archdiocese of Birmingham, with support and cooperation from a number of organisations including the National Office for Vocation and Compass.

This national festival is aimed at young men and women aged 16-35, who are looking to deepen their relationship with Christ, discern God’s will for their lives and at least be open to the possibility of priesthood or consecrated life. The cost for each attendee is £50. This includes the entrance fee for the weekend, camping pitch or place in accommodation marquee provided, all activities and all meals.
You can book and pay online in a safe and secure environment at or you can download and print the booking form and send it to us with a cheque. Further information is available at the website.
