Good Shepherd Sunday: 17 April

April 17, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

On this day dedicated to prayer for vocations, Pope Francis is urging all the faithful to assume their responsibility for the care and discernment of vocations. In his Message, the Holy Father says: “Among those involved in pastoral activity, priests are especially important. In their ministry, they fulfil the words of Jesus, who said: ‘I am the gate of the sheepfold … I am the good shepherd’ (Jn 10: 7, 11). The pastoral care of vocations is a fundamental part of their ministry. Priests accompany those who are discerning a vocation, as well as those who have already dedicated their lives to the service of God and of the community.” To find out more about priesthood, contact Fr Warren Edwards, Director of Priestly Vocations, tel 0409 172 700, vocations@parra.catholic.org.au
