Bulletin and Website Notices for Vocations

Trinity Sunday to Christ the King 2020

This page offers brief reflections drawn from the readings for Mass from the Sundays and major feast days in the second half of 2020.

We hope they can prompt some thought and prayer about vocation to priesthood or religious life. While parishes have been unable to provide the usual bulletins and notices due to church closures over these months, we hope that you can use them online, on parish publications on your website, parish Twitter feeds or Facebook pages. An occasional or weekly post may be sufficient to help someone who may be considering whether God might be calling him or her to follow Him in a life of service to the Church.

Below, you can find the “prompts” for the first two Sundays after Pentecost (Trinity Sunday and Corpus Christi). For the remaining Sundays of the year, click here.

If you are using Twitter or Facebook, you might consider using the hashtag #ThinkVocations2020. Why not get it “trending” this year!

Be generous in casting the net!

Trinity Sunday — 7th June 2020
“God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son.” Could you be someone who brings people knowledge of God’s love as a priest, a deacon or in religious life? Call your Diocesan Vocations Director, email Priests for Scotland at office@pfs.org.uk, or see our website or Facebook pages, PFS or VocationNetworkScotland.

Body and Blood of the Lord (“Corpus Christi”) — 14th June 2020
“Anyone who does eat my flesh and drink my blood has eternal life.” There is no greater gift of God than the Eucharist. Are you being called to bring God’s people the nourishment of the Eucharist as a priest? Is it the source of your own life? Call your Diocesan Vocations Director, email Priests for Scotland at office@pfs.org.uk, or see our website or Facebook page.
