Day of Prayer for Vocations

Published on April 13, 2018

Next Sunday April 22nd the Church throughout the world prays for vocations.

Will you make a special effort to ask the Lord for more vocations to the priesthood and religious life?
-Pray for the priests who have ministered to you throughout your life, both living and dead.
-Keep our parish priests in your prayers throughout the week.
-Encourage your children, grandchildren and other young people to consider a vocation as a priest or religious brother or sister.
-Pray a rosary for more young men and women in our diocese to respond to God’s call.

The Offertory collection at all Masses next weekend will be for the education of priests to the Diocese of Meath.

 

A Prayer for Vocations

O, Jesus send labourers into your fields, which are awaiting Holy Apostles, saintly Priests, Heroic Missionaries, dedicated Sisters and Brothers.
Enkindle in the hearts of men and women the spark of a Vocation.
Grant that Christian families may desire to give to your Church helpers in the work of tomorrow.
Amen
