This group is for anyone who may be considering a vocation, or at least wanting to spend some time discerning God’s will for their life.

We start with friendship and fellowship by sharing a meal. Then, during the evening we have some kind of relevant input, talk & discussion regard vocation – this could be from the Vocation Promotion team, or a member of a Religious Community or a current Seminarian. We spend a period of prayer in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

The Seeker Group meets on the first Friday of every month from 7-9pm. All are welcome to join us at Sacred Heart Church Fareham, PO16 ONQ.
