This Sunday marks the beginning of Vocations Awareness Week here in Scotland, a time of dedicated prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood, Diaconate and Consecrated Life. Ordinarily, during Vocations Awareness Week, we would celebrate our Diocesan Vocations Mass at the Cathedral and host our Vocations Conference for S6 pupils.
Regrettably, due to the ongoing public health situation, these events are simply not feasible this year. As in previous years, however, we have developed materials for use in our Secondary Schools during this time. Focused on the theme of ‘parable’, these materials invite pupils to consider God’s plan for their lives and every session includes resources for a time of prayer and reflection.
Please pray specifically during this week for Vocations and if you can, attend weekday Masses for the intention of Vocations.
