"Where people pray, vocations blossom" - Pope Benedict

Pope Benedict XVI, in one of his messages for the World Day of Prayer for Vocations, affirmed that, "where people pray, vocations blossom". We can see this here in the Archdiocese of Cardiff, where we have six young men discerning their vocation at Allen Hall and St. Mary's College, Oscott. 

It is a truly blessed time for our diocese. Last Wednesday, on the eve of the feast of St. Thomas, Archbidhop George Stack ordained Rev. Bernard Sixtus to the priesthood - this is the first priestly ordination since 2007. The ordination homily can be viewed on the diocesan website.

It has also been announced that Rev. Mr. Michael Doyle, currently assisting at St. Dyfrig's in Trefforrest, will be ordained to the priesthood on Saturday, 6th September at 12noon in St. David's Cathedral. 

Please pray for Deacon Michael as he prepares for his ordination, and for Fr. Bernard and his family as he takes up his appointment in Usk.
