The Fourth Sunday of Easter is Good Shepherd Sunday, when we pray especially for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Currently the diocese has ten young men in training for priesthood, one of whom, Conor, is due to be ordained in July. The other students are Andrew, Dominic, Matthew, Conor, Laurence, Philip, James, Kenny and Michael. Please remember them in your prayers.
The second collection on the Fourth Sunday of Easter is the yearly collection for the education of our student priests. Your support of this collection has always been greatly appreciated. Your continued support of this annual church collection on Sunday 29th April 2012 is again requested. Your financial contribution is another concrete way of supporting our students as they journey towards priesthood for service in our parishes.
