Vocations Sunday

Jesus is still calling priests, he needs you to say yes to his call. Be a priest and find joy, bring people to God and let   Jesus work through you. “A disciple of Jesus has a heart open to his unlimited horizons” (Pope Francis).

If you feel called to be a priest, open your heart to Jesus, follow the Lord and do not be afraid.   Phone: Fr Tony Gonoude 044-9373923   Website: www.meathvocations.com.Instagram Account:  dioceseofmeathvocations  Email: vocations@dioceseofmeath.ie .
