Vocations Sunday 2014

Sunday 11 May is the World Day of Prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life - sometimes known as Good Shepherd Sunday. Whatever our path in life, we can all be part of a prayerful and supportive community that inspires young men and women to dedicate their lives to God. Whether you know people considering a vocation or would like to pray for many more to be inspired you are welcome to use our resources for personal prayer or as part of the parish community.

In this section, we've uploaded some podcasts from the National Office for Vocation (NOV). For a full web section on Vocations Sunday, visit the official website.

The content is structured in the following sections: Pray, Hear, Teach, Read.
