Diocese of Derry

Vocations Week 2020

Sunday 16th -Saturday 22nd February

During this week of prayer centred on Vocations, parishioners in all parishes across the Diocese of Derry are encouraged to pray for hearts open to the presence of the Holy Spirit.  The Spirit continues to provide the People of God with numerous gifts.  Can we be brave and generous enough to respond to the promptings of God’s Spirit?  Without the Holy Spirt there would be no ministries alive and active in the Church, helping to build the Body of Christ.  During Vocations Week can we become aware of our role in God’s plan to heal and redeem a broken world?  How can we use our gifts to promote the reign of God?  How is God calling each one of us to live out our lives in response to His call?  As we search our hearts, are we being called to priesthood, Religious life, married or single life?
