Known as Good Shepherd Sunday is observed each year as a Day of Prayer for Vocations especially to the Priesthood. In a Message Pope Francis speaks of a “ vocational symphony “ – click here by which all the “calls” co operate in the mission of the Church. Bishop Richard writes to us in his Pastoral Message for this Sunday and calls for a month of prayer for Vocatiions for the mission of the Church and for the priesthood in A&B. The information is contained in a leaflet to help in prayer up to Pentecost Sunday, click here for further details,
The Coronation of King Charles III
We are invited to observe a triduum of prayer Wednesday to Friday prior to the Coronation on Saturday. There are leaflets with orayers to help our prayer during these days. Every Catholic Community has been asked to gather to celebrate Mass for the King on Friday Evening at 7.30pm. On Saturday as you watch the Coronation Service you will find echoes of scripture and the ritual of anointing with oil with symbols of Office that reflect the rituals of the Old and New Testament and the sacramental practice of the Church.
