We need YOU to pray for vocations. To help you do this we host a Mass for Vocations each month to pray that men and women across the Archdiocese will respond to the call to explore the priesthood and religious life.

Mass for Vocations, 6:30pm, Monday 07 Dec, St Columba's Church, 9 Upper Gray Street, Edinburgh EH9 1SN
(Eucharistic Adoration from 5:30pm)

The Mass will be celebrated by Father Andrew Garden, our Director of Vocations. Also attending will be Sister Mirjam Hugens FSO, our director for religious vocations (pictured below).

Can't come? Please say our vocations prayer now or at 6:30pm on Monday 07 December

Heavenly Father, in your mercy you give to your people every good gift.

We turn to you in faith, asking that you bless our Archdiocese with vocations to the priesthood and religious life.

Inspire us with your Holy Spirit to help young men and women hear your call and respond with joyful hearts.

Bless our young people with the gift of courage to respond to your call.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
