...to the ends of the earth

New app designed to help users discover vocations

The Catholic Church in England and Wales has launched a mobile phone app designed to help users deepen their faith and discover their vocations.

The ‘God Calls’ app was commissioned by the National Office for Vocation of the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales as a ‘spiritual toolkit’.

The app includes daily prayers and meditations on the Gospel and the lives of the saints, as well as a news section and Twitter feed to connect users to the life of the Church.

It also includes a journal so that users can monitor their spiritual growth and understand more clearly how God might be calling them.

The vocations office said in a statement that Catholics would see their faith grow if they used the app regularly.
