Most fulfilled and spiritually fruitful by remaining unmarried and celibate for the sake of Christ
My vocation is to be celibate in the middle of the world
When I filled in the Called and Gifted Inventory, I scored highly for the charism of Celibacy. I could really identify with the statements I am glad that I am single because I am freer to serve God and others more freely and I am emotionally and spiritually fulfilled without the special intimacy of marriage.
My vocation is to be celibate in the middle of the world, in the middle of the parish, diocese ... bringing together others who feel the same way and beginning a new journey using the New Evangelisation as a road map.
I have spent a large proportion of my adult life caring for my elderly and disabled parents. This was not always an easy task, but I believe very much that through the Charism of Celibacy I was able to give of my time to them freely and joyfully in spite of the difficulty of the task. I also felt a strong call within me to give my time and talent to my local parish as a pastoral worker. I stepped out in faith and gave up my full time job as a teacher to explore this further.
