Quo Vadis? Considering the priesthood?

This image, taken from one of the Cathedral's windows, shows an event which tradition recalls taking place near the end of St Peter's life. Fleeing Rome fearing execution, Peter meets the Lord on the road. "Quo vadis, Domine?" - "Where are you going, Lord?", he asks. Jesus tells him: "I'm going to Rome to be crucified again." At this point Peter's faith and courage are restored and he returns to Rome where he is put to death. Now the Diocesan Vocations Service is putting the same question: "Where are you going?" to some of the young men of our Diocese, with a day called 'Quo Vadis?' taking place at the Cathedral on 6th December, 10:30am-4pm. The day is for any man (minimum 17 years old) who is considering becoming a priest. It's a chance to meet some of our seminarians, ask questions and pray together. If you're interested, please call the Vocations Director, Fr Manny Gribben, on 01946 810324 or email
