The Lord told us to ask him to provide labourers for his harvest, and the recent increase in young men coming forward to discern a vocation to the priesthood is surely due to the renewed emphasis on prayer for vocations.
Please remember the seminarians and the work of the seminary in your prayers.
bless those preparing for the priesthood at Allen Hall, and all those involved in the life of the seminary.
May they discern your will in their lives; may they grow in faith, hope and love; and may they lead others to know Christ and to grow in holiness.
We pray especially that you will call many people to the priesthood and consecrated life in our diocese, and that you will give them the courage they need to answer your call.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Saint Thomas More… pray for us. Martyrs of Douai… pray for us.
