Vocations Icon – Galway

The latest stop of the Vocations Icon, an Icon of St. Dominic, is in Galway. After Newbridge College, Dundalk, Newry and Sligo the Icon moved this last weekend to our priory and church in the Claddagh in Galway.

The main aim of bringing the icon around the Irish Province is to encourage the congregation to pray for vocations. Prayer is the most important aspect of vocations promotion which is very clear from the “Year of Praying for Vocations”. A few years ago the Church celebrated a year of praying for vocations and the great response which came as a result proves that the Lord is always listening to our prayers.

Please join us in prayer for vocations.


Lord Jesus,
as once you called Saint Dominic to preach the Gospel,
so now, through the intercession of Our Blessed Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and patroness of the Order,
we ask you to send new preachers into your harvest.

Give them the graces necessary to preach with wisdom and courage.
May they be witnesses to your life, death and resurrection, bringing the light of the true faith into the darkness of people’s lives.
You who live and reign for ever and ever.

Amen
