Today is a day of prayer for vocations to Religious Life and to Priesthood.
We welcome Fr William Nicol, Pastoral Director/Formation Advisor at Allen Hall, our diocesan seminary, who will speak at all Masses this weekend.
Priest Training Fund
We pray for priests and for vocations to the priesthood. The annual collection for the Priest Training Fund will take place after each Mass. This fund pays for the priestly formation of men for the Catholic priesthood. There are currently 45 men studying at Allen Hall seminary, 27 of whom are for our own Diocese, and last year eight men ordained to the priesthood to serve as our future priests. This fund also supports the ongoing enrichment and formation of our ordained priests.
Your generous donation helps ensure we can support these men who are called to be like Christ the Good Shepherd. Donation leaflets are available in the back of the church. Please take one home, read the information, and bring it back next weekend with your donation. You can also donate online anytime at www.rcdow.org.uk/donations.
Please continue to pray for vocations and for our priests.
