They know his voice

This weekend was very special in our parishes. All all the Masses, servers were admitted to the Guild of St Stephen. At the 10am Mass at OLOL we were delighted to welcome many children, parents and staff from St Charles School. This Sunday was Good Shepherd Sunday, the annual Day of Prayer for Vocations. In his homily, Fr Colin encouraged our young people to get to know the voice of the Lord calling them throughout their lives. He asked them to be open to the possibility that this might include a call to the priesthood, diaconate, or consecrated life. He pointed the children to Mary, the one who always knew the voice of the Lord, and responded to it with love. At the end of Mass we had our annual May Procession, and we gathered on the steps outside the Church for our May Queen to crown Our Lady. Thanks be to God.
