Prayer Crusade for Vocations in Ireland

497

The Bishops Council for Vocations in Ireland, in collaboration with St Joseph’s Young Priests Society, the Knights of St Columbanus and Vocations Ireland are asking that on the 13th May (Feast of Our Lady of Fatima), a time of prayer will be held for an increase in Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life in Ireland.

Pope Francis will be in Fatima for the feast of Our Lady of Fatima this year where he will canonise two of the visionaries of the Marian Apparitions there. People are invited across Ireland to pray The Angelus or a decade of the Rosary for Vocations to Priesthood and Religious Life at 12 noon on that day. It’s also suggested that on the 13th day of each month, from May to October 2017 that a decade of the Rosary be prayed for Vocations in Ireland.
