Prayer cards were distributed on Vocations Sunday this year asking those at Mass to “Pray for the priests we need for the future and for the priests we have today” . Should you require prayer cards or posters to help in promoting priesthood in Scotland then please contact the Priests for Scotland office. We will be happy to supply so far as stock allows.
This initiative started last year and involved the distribution of memory sticks to young people attending World Youth Day 2011 and those attending Lourdes with Diocesan Pilgrimages 2012. The project is still ongoing. The memory stick contained ten short video presentation promoting priesthood or religious life. The memory stick also contained adequate space for the young person to use the available memory for study or for retaining other data. This initiative successfully delivered Vocational material to the point of use, a task not always easy to accomplish in vocations promotion.
