Vocations Sunday 22nd April 2018

The purpose of the World Day of Prayer for Vocations is to publically fulfill the Lord's instruction to, "Pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest". 

On this Vocations Sunday, we pray for all who the Lord calls to a vocation in the Assumption - may they hear God's invitation in their lives and have courage to respond to it!

While appreciating all vocations, the Church concentrates its attention this day on vocations to the ordained ministries, to the Religious life, to societies of apostolic life, to secular institutes and to the missionary life.

Pope Francis writes in his message for WORLD DAY OF VOCATIONS:

"Even amid these troubled times, the mystery of the Incarnation reminds us that God continually comes to encounter us. He is God-with-us, who walks along the often dusty paths of our lives. He knows our anxious longing for love and he calls us to joy. In the diversity and the uniqueness of each and every vocation, personal and ecclesial, there is a need to listen, discern and live this word that calls to us from on high and, while enabling us to develop our talents, makes us instruments of salvation in the world and guides us to full happiness.
These three aspects – listening, discerning and living – were also present at beginning of Jesus’ own mission, when, after his time of prayer and struggle in the desert, he visited his synagogue of Nazareth. There, he listened to the word, discerned the content of the mission entrusted to him by the Father, and proclaimed that he came to accomplish it “today” (Lk 4:16-21)."
