VOCATIONS SUNDAY

This weekend we pray for vocations.

Loving Father, touch and transform us by the joy of your love. Make us missionary disciples, empowered to carry the love of Christ to our neighbour.

May young people be inspired by our example to take up the path of Christian discipleship and dedicate their lives to the service of the Gospel.

Raise up vocations by the power of your Holy Spirit to the priesthood and the consecrated life: send us men and women, inspired to be living signs of your mercy.

Grant us all an openness of heart, and we might readily respond to your call, and proclaim with joy the Good News to the whole world.

Through Christ our Lord, Amen.

BAPTISMAL PREPARATION COURSE

The next one is in July.

 

STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION

Saint Peter plays a prominent leadership role in the first two readings, urging his listeners to be baptized and accept the gift of the Holy Spirit; and encouraging them to follow in the footsteps of Christ. We have just renewed our baptismal promises at Easter and the Holy Spirit dwells in us in a special way. Are we good stewards of those baptismal vows? Have we renewed our commitment to follow in Jesus footsteps? Have we opened our hearts to discern the will of God in our lives? Take some time to reflect on the importance of our baptismal renewal and our lives as disciples of the Lord.

 

VACANCY
