Good Shepherd Sunday

Today is known as “Good Shepherd Sunday”, a day when the Church asks us to pray in a special way for vocations to the priest-hood and religious life. The purpose of this day is to publically fulfill the Lord’s instruction to, “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send labourers into his harvest” (Mt 9:38; Lk 10:2). Please pray that men and women will hear and respond generously to the Lord’s call to the priesthood, diaconate and religious life. We currently have three seminarians. With gratitude to God, we look forward to the ordination of Martin Shanahan from the parish of Kilmurry Ibrickane on June 3rd. A recent vocations promotion was attended by four men from the Diocese and they are now considering to enter to study for the Diocese of Killaloe. Please keep them in your prayers in a special way. If you would like more information please call Fr. Iggy McCormack our Diocesan Vocations Director on 086 277 7139.
