Compass - Late Vocation, A
Compass explores the modern day appeal of religious life by following the personal journeys of three Australians who take up a vocation later in life.
A late vocation is a trend that harks back to medieval times when special religious orders were established for widows, men returning from battle and older people wishing to devote their later years to a spiritual life. Today, many people follow a calling after they have lived out a career-based vocation. In this program Compass meets a former Catholic nun who has just been ordained an Anglican priest; a former naval officer training to be a Franciscan brother; and, a former lawyer and federal politician who is now a Catholic priest. While maturity gives them some advantages, they also face unique challenges.
