The Poor Clares

The Poor Clares in Galway are holding a Monastic Experience Day for young women  who might be interested in their way of life. The event will take place from 10am to 5pm on Saturday the 2nd of March.  The day is designed to help those who may be exploring the possibility of a religious vocation to find out more about the Poor Clare way of life.  Anyone wishing to book a place should email vocations@poorclares.ie

VOCATIONS WEBINAR

Tuesday, 5th March from 8-9pm. The webinar is hosted by ‘The Hook of Faith’ platform (www.thehookoffaith.com) and is organised in collaboration with the National Vocations Office.

The webinar is entitled ‘The Last Priest in Ireland? It Depends on You’.  It is a follow up of a RTE documentary broadcast in January entitled ‘The Last Priest in Ireland’. The keynote speaker will be Breda O’Brien. There will be a panel of responders.

The webinar is a Church response to the programme and an opportunity for dialogue about the future of vocations to the priesthood in Ireland. The provocative title hopefully promotes a desire to create a culture of vocations for which we are all responsible. The initiative is part of the year of prayer and promotion to the diocesan priesthood ‘Take the Risk for Christ’.
