Resolution 38

The Church and the Modern World - The Church Militant

While to every member of the Church there falls a share of responsibility for its life and work, yet it is impossible to over-estimate the importance of maintaining and indeed increasing the supply of men and women who are prepared to devote their whole time to some special form of ministry for Christ and his Church. The Conference therefore urges clergy, teachers, and parents to seek for and encourage among young people vocations to Holy Orders, to the teaching ministry, to religious communities, and to other forms of full-time service in the Church, at home and abroad.
