God's people

On Sunday 3 May 2020, the Church throughout the world prays in a particular way for vocations.  Will you make a special effort to ask the Lord for more vocations to the priesthood and religious life for our Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie?  Take this opportunity to pray for the priests and religious who have ministered to you in your life, and consider encouraging your

children, grandchildren or other young people to consider a vocation as a priest or religious sister or brother.  Pray that those that the Lord is calling to serve the Church will overcome their fear, and allow God to shape them into who he has made them to be.

How will you respond?

Is God calling you to be a priest or to Religious Life?
