To coincide with Vocations Awareness Week around Scotland, a second edition of our newsletter has been sent to parishes and schools.
This edition focuses on the stories and personalities of some of the new priests ordained around Scotland this year, a year which has seen what some have referred to as a “twenty-year high” in numbers of ordinations. Likewise, 2017 has seen a number of new religious professions and young people exploring religious life as a real option for them. As a final cause of joy and thanksgiving to God, it seems likely that this year also will see the highest number of applicants to seminary, to begin formation for priesthood, that we have seen for a decade or more. G0d’s grace is at work; the call is being heard. Please pray for all those considering and entering into priestly or religious formation and for all the new priests who will begin their service in our parishes over these months.
