World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests
The World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests takes place annually on the Feast of the Sacred Heart, which this year falls on 11 June. On that morning I will take part in the Worldpriest Global Rosary Relay by reciting the Glorious Mysteries at 8.30 am over the webcam in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh, after the 8.00 am Mass. You may wish to share the attached poster of the event on social media platforms.
Pope Francis has given his Apostolic Blessing to this global event and has sent a message of appreciation to priests and commends them and all those praying for priests that day to the loving intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary.
Please set aside time on 11 June to pray for yourselves and your brother priests.
