Good Shepherd Sunday is set aside each fourth Sunday of Easter to focus on vocations or the call to priesthood or the religious life. Pope Francis in his message encourages members of the church to join the prayer on this day.
We are also invited in the second collection to join in the costs for the training of future priests.
The Diocesan mission continues throughout Eastertide – more information can be found out here.
