Vocation to Priesthood

Every time and every era presents its own challenges to the Church and this time is no different. The call to priesthood as a way of life continues to be a serious option for many young men, a call which should be promoted and fostered.

An afternoon for those interested in or curious about Priesthood in Kildare & Leighlin is being held in Portlaoise Parish Centre on Sunday 23rd May 2010 from 3.00pm – 5.00pm. All are welcome.

Prayer to know my vocation

My Lord and my God,
you are Love itself, the source of all love and goodness.
Out of love you created me to know you, to love you,
and to serve you in a unique way, as no one else can.
I believe that you have a plan for my life,
that you have a mission in your Kingdom reserved for me alone.

Lord grant me the light of grace I need to see the next step in Your plan;
grant me the generosity necessary to follow your call;
and grant me the courage required to take up my cross and to follow you.

Show me your will, O gentle and eternal God, and help me to say with Mary,
I am the servant of the Lord; let it be done to me according to your word.
Let me say with Jesus, Let not my will be done, but yours.
Amen.
