On Saturday 22nd December I hosted the annual Christmas gathering for our Seminarians at Bishop's House.
Please remember to pray for our seminarians, those responsible for their care and formation, for those responsible for Vocations promotion and especially for Our Lord's call to more good men to serve in the Sacred Priesthood.
Lord Jesus Christ, Shepherd of souls, who called the apostles to be fishers of men, raise up new apostles in your holy Church. Teach them that to serve you is to reign: to possess you is to possess all things. Kindle in the hearts of our people the fire of zeal for souls. Make them eager to spread your Kingdom upon earth. Grant them courage to follow you, who are the Way, the Truth, and the Life; who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.
