VOCATIONS SUNDAY – 8th May 2022
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. “If you feel called to be a priest, open your heart to Jesus, follow the Lord and do not be afraid. Jesus needs priests today more than ever. For more information please contact: Fr Tony Gonoude on 044-9373923.
Prayer for Vocations
to the Priesthood and Religious Life
God our Creator, send workers into your harvest.
May the Spirit we received in baptism
touch the hearts of many
to offer themselves in priesthood, religious life
and other forms of service.
Give the parents and families of our Diocese
the wisdom and courage to support young people
in searching for, and following
the call of God to serve the people.
