A PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS (DIOCESE OF ANTIGONISH - The fourth Sunday of Easter, Christians are invited to reflect on the meaning of God’s call and to pray for vocations. Christ, the Good Shepherd, continues to lead his people through His Bishops, Priests, and Deacons, and call many to follow Him in this way. Priestly, diaconal, and religious vocations should be a constant concern in the hearts of God’s people. Heavenly Father, bless your Church with an abundance of holy and dedicated priests, deacons, brothers and sisters. Give those you have called to the married state and those you have chosen to live as single persons in the world, the special graces that their lives require. Form as all in the likeness of your Son as that in him, with him and through him, we may love you more deeply and serve you more faithfully, always and everywhere. With Mary we ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
THANK YOU - Thank you to everyone who made me feel welcomed and part of your families. I leave here with many fond memories and will always carry you with me in my heart. Please pray for me and I promise to pray for you and Fr. Jonathan. -Sincerely Fr. Dan
