World Day of Prayer for Vocations 2015
Last edited 29th April 2015

The fourth Sunday of Easter is Good Shepherd Sunday, and this year it fell on 26 April 2015. It is also the annual World Day of Prayer for Vocations! Prayer is an essential ingredient for vocations. Pope Francis once said that behind and before every vocation to the priesthood or consecrated life, there is always the strong and intense prayer of someone... vocations are born in prayer and from prayer, and only through prayer can they persevere and bear fruit. Watch this video reflection for more.

Last edited 12th April 2015

When Sister Mary Clementina entered the convent in January 1968, she was 17 and had just finished school. She even remembers the exact time: four o'clock in the afternoon. She never regretted the decision: "And from that year until now I've never gone back home. I'm now 64 years old. I joined at 17 years. And then now I've alredy celebrated my 25 years. I'm waiting to celebrate 50 years as a religious.”

“Our Work is to Pray, So We Pray for the World” - Sister Therese (Benedictine Sister from Jamberoo Abbey)
Last edited 10th April 2015
