Newsletter-7-May-2017World Day of Prayer for Vocations


Today, the Fourth Sunday of Easter or Good Shepherd Sunday is a special day for everyone in our parish and our Diocese. We celebrate World Day of Prayer for Vocations. We thank God for the vocation to which he has called us through the gift of our Baptism.

We ask that we may be filled with joy and the Holy Spirit as we carry on the mission of Jesus, our Good Shepherd. We also pray in thanksgiving today for our Bishop, Priests, Religious and Deacons and for an increase in priestly vocations in the Church. We pray especially for all our young people, that they may listen to God’s call and be enabled to respond with courage and generosity.


“On this Good Shepherd Sunday let us pray for vocations in our Church. We need committed men and women who believe that their call to ordained or consecrated life is from God. Ultimately, a vocation is not defined by “doing” but rather by “being.” We are called to live our lives in a generous response of mercy to the One who gave us life. Being in the presence of the Father, sharing in the mission of Christ, being men and women of mercy and witnessing in the power of the Holy Spirit is what being a follower of the Good Shepherd is all about.” (Pope Francis)
