What’s on Locally…

To follow Jesus Closely Bishop Treanor has written a pastoral letter on priesthood and vocational discernment. In it, he invites us to pray for an increase in vocations to priesthood and religious life. He encourages us to contribute to a culture which supports young people to listen, discern and live God’s call in their lives. Copies of the letter will be distributed at the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday Masses. Please take one and reflect on its themes with your loved ones. For further information on vocations to priesthood, please visit vocationsdownandconnor.org or contact Fr Kevin McGuckien on 02890614567
