"BELIEVE ME... NOBODY CAN BE TRULY HAPPY IN THIS WORLD UNLESS HE IS AT PEACE WITH GOD."
- Don Bosco

Vocational discernment is more than just thinking and reflection. It must go beyond ideas and theory and engage in action. St Francis de Sales spoke about the “ecstasy of action” a way of being caught up in the presence of God through a deep awareness of doing everything in God’s presence. That awareness can change every word and act into a prayer. That awareness is the space in which God’s will and voice can be heard.

SDB discernment means engaging with life and seeing what happens, engaging in work for young people and reflecting on the impact of that experience. In reflecting on working together for young people much can be clarified in the discernment process; do I feel at home with young people? Do I have skills I need to work safely with them? Am I more alive, more at peace and connected when I am working with them? Most of all, can I be myself with young people and with the community members with whom I work?

Practical experience is essential and opportunities can be found to work alongside Salesians in the news and events zone of the site.
