This weekend, for the Diocese of Hamilton, the annual Vocations Retreat is commencing at the Tyburn Monastery, at Ngakuru, twenty-five minutes from Rotorua, for men discerning a vocation to the Priesthood.

The retreat is an opportunity for them to spend time in prayer, in silence, listening to talks about discernment and discovering and exploring what special plan God may have for them.

Are they being called to the Priesthood or another vocation?

Are they prepared to step out and take the risk to discover what God might be calling them to be?

It is a courageous thing to take time to spend with the Lord, discerning His will. We support them with our prayers and we especially pray for them this weekend (14th to the 16th December 2012).

Thank you for your prayerful support.

Kind regards and God bless

Father Eamon Kennedy
