Vocations Novena

In his Holy Thursday Pastoral Letter To follow Jesus closely, Bishop Noel Treanor encourages us to pray for an increase in vocations to priesthood and religious life. Throughout the diocese of Down and Connor a Novena of Prayer for Vocations will be prayed from Friday 3rd - Sat 11th May, leading up to Good Shepherd Sunday, 12th May, the Annual Day of Prayer for Vocations. Copies of the Novena are available in the church porches at Masses this Sunday. Together, let us pray that all of us hear the call to follow Jesus closely and respond to it with open minds and big hearts, and that more will do so as priests and religious. The Novena will conclude with an All-Night Vigil of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in St Patrick’s and St. Bridget’s Church from after the 6.30pm Vigil Mass on Saturday 11th May until the 10am Mass on Sunday 12th May.

(Next weekend a sign-in sheet will be available in the church porch; please use it to sign in to commit to a particular hour’s Adoration that night)
