John the Baptist prepared the way for the Lord. Advent is a time for us to make space for Jesus in our busy lives. This would be the essence for a man discerning his vocation-to set himself apart like John the Baptist and to focus on what God’s special plan is for each of us, our vocation in life.

From the 12th to the 14th December the Vocations Retreat will be held at Ngakuru, a 40 minute drive from Rotorua. I invite men who would like to spend some time reflecting on their vocation to come. Please register on the Vocations website. http://thepriesthood.org.nz/events/vocations-retreat/

Kind regards and God bless
