FOURTH SUNDAY OF EASTER

GOOD SHEPHERD SUNDAY

PRAYING FOR VOCATIONS

When a person accepts the call of Christ to be a priest or religious their life is changed.  But so are the lives of thousands of people who will be touched through their ministry.  Today we pray that people will respond generously to the call of Christ to serve him in the priesthood and religious life.

 

REQUESTING A MASS INTENTION

If you would like a Mass to be said for your Intentions, or for the Intentions of someone else, please contact the Parish Office, or come to the Presbytery, so we can ensure it gets recorded in the diary.

It is only possible for us to receive one Intention per priest, per Mass, per day and so if the day you would like is unavailable we can either arrange for your Intention to be offered on another day or send to another priest to be said in another parish.

In order to avoid upset or disappointment please do not present us with envelopes with dated Mass Intentions as we cannot guarantee that that date is available.
