Keep up with the readings each day and reflect with us. Even though we may not be able to receive Holy Communion, we can still invite Christ into our hearts through spiritual communion.

Pope Francis’ message to priests

As with every call, the Gospel speaks of an encounter. Jesus walks by, sees those fishermen, and walks up to them…The same thing happened when we met the person we wanted to marry, or when we first felt the attraction of a life of consecration: we were surprised by an encounter, and at that moment we glimpsed the promise of a joy capable of bringing fulfilment to our lives.

Vocations Awareness Week August 5-12

Fr Peter Zwaans new.jpg

In speaking about the World Day of Prayer for Vocations, Pope Francis remarked: ‘It is beautiful – and a great grace – to be completely consecrated to God and the service of our brothers and sisters.’

The vocation which God has prepared for each of us is, at its heart, a call to joy: a beautiful and a great grace. I think the Pope reminds us of the joy of God’s call because it is something we can easily forget

2017 National Vocations Awareness Week

2017 Vocations poster.jpg

All are called and this vocation from God is uniquely personal, but always in the context of the community of faith. No-one is called to walk alone. We are called from within families and communities, precisely to serve others in the community as God’s instruments. The call of God comes to us in and through the faithfulness of others.

National Vocations Awareness Week

Dean Marin.jpg

By Father Dean Marin

As we begin to mark National Vocation Awareness Week this month (August 7-14) one cannot go past the remarkable example of San Salvador Archbishop Oscar Romero, who was beatified on May 23. Blessed Romero was shot dead 35 years ago by a sniper as he celebrated Mass in the chapel of a hospital. A day earlier, he called upon soldiers to stop carrying out the government’s repression of the people.
