World Day of Prayer for Vocations will be observed on Sunday, April 30th, 2023. It is also known as ‘Good Shepherd Sunday’ because the Gospel is always from John chapter 10 where Jesus speaks of himself as being a caring shepherd. The purpose of this day is to publicly fulfill the Lord's instruction when he asked us: "Pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest" (Mt 9:38; Lk 10:2). This year, a whole year is dedicated to prayer and promotion of the vocation to the diocesan priesthood. The theme of the year is entitled ‘TAKE THE RISK FOR CHRIST’. Please pray that young men and women hear and respond generously to the Lord's call to the priesthood and religious life and the Church will always having pastors who care for God’s people with the heart of Christ himself.

This Sunday 30th April, at St Aidan’s Cathedral, Enniscorthy, Vocations Sunday will be marked by a holy hour of prayer led by Bishop Ger. All are welcome. Please come and pray with us.
