Good Shepherd Sunday

Next Sunday 15th of May is Vocations Sunday.  Vocations Sunday provides us with an opportunityto recognise in a very special way our own unique calling as sons and daughtersof God.  On this day we recognise the sacredness and giftedness of everymember of our Catholic Family.  Vocations Sunday is a call toall of us to use the many gifts and talents that we have to build up the kingdom of God.  God dependson our uniqueness to build a unique Kingdom. As we recall our own baptismal calling as disciples of the Lord we also unite our prayers with the Church throughout the world in praying for vocations to the priesthood and religiouslife.  In his message for Vocations Sunday Pope Benedict calls us to keep alive the challenging and uplifting invitation of Christespecially to our young people to follow him and contemplate entering into Hisservice as priest, sister or religious brother.
