VOCATIONS TO THE PRIESTHOOD
Have you ever wondered if you are being called to be a Diocesan Priest? If you have ever considered a vocation to the priesthood, then you are not on your own. God is constantly calling people to ministry in the Church, but often His call gets drowned out by the care and busyness of life. If you are contemplating a vocation to priesthood, contact: Vocations Director, Archbishop’s House, Drumcondra, Dublin 9 E-mail: email@example.com Phone/Text: 086 834 6071 Web: www.priest.ie
