This weekend we are asked to pray especially for Vocations.

The second collection THIS weekend will be for the Priests Training Fund.

The celebration of Good Shepherd Sunday is an opportunity to pray that the lord will raise up more people to inspire the Church as priests and consecrated women and men.

The focus this year is on how a vocation to be a religious or a priest changes not only the life of the person called but also the life of those to whom they will minister. Above all this is a moment to invite everyone to be involved in the process of changing lives through their prayer for vocations.

There are some prayer cards at the back of church along with some prayer booklets which contain five days of prayer for vocations to the priesthood or consecrated life.

First Friday Vigil

Beginning with Mass at 8.30pm NEXT Friday, 1st May, and continuing in prayer until 11.30pm, this is a wonderful time to be with God our father, opening

ourselves to experience his love and praying for all our needs.

All are very welcome to join us.
