Fifth Sunday of Easter – 2 May 2021

“It is to the glory of my Father that you should bear much fruit and then you will be my disciples.” Are you being called to love the Lord and His people as a priest, sister or brother? Love demands truth and action. 

If you are considering a vocation to the priesthood or religious life, please speak to your local priest or our Diocesan Vocations Director (Fr. Ultan McGoohan, PP Bailieborough – telephone  042 9665117 – Email:, or email the National Vocations Office at


A prayer for the coming week:

That Catholic mothers will abide in the Lord as branches on His vine, cultivating in their children the desire to love Him in truth and action, especially should He honor them with vocations to the priesthood or consecrated life.

We pray to the Lord … Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
