Are you an English or Welsh pilgrim going to World Youth Day? Come and visit our Vocations Stand at the Cracovia Stadium (at the southern edge of Błonia) to receive your free Mercy cap! We would love to chat to you about any questions or thoughts you might have about who God is calling you to be.
The Daughters of Charity have recently launched a new website with a prayer request feature. Sister Theresa Tighe writes: “The site has a special prayer request page where our older sisters will pray for requests for prayer that come through the site. Our older sisters’ ministry is to prayer and presence for those in need.”
If you have a prayer request that you would like the sisters to pray for, please put it in the “Prayer Requests” panel of their website: http://www.daughtersofcharity.org.uk/Spirit

COMPASS aims to help men and women discern their vocation, with a particular focus on vocations to religious life. The annual programme starts in November, running over 5 weekends and the Easter Triduum, and ends in April. Over the six months you will be able to explore your vocation and experience religious life, to help you find out if it is for you, while continuing with your current work or studies.
An engaging interactive assembly resource has recently been made available from Ten Ten, in partnership with the National Office for Vocation, to help primary school children understand why certain people choose to follow God’s call to become priests and sisters.
Please visit www.tentenresources.co.uk/vocations for sample pages of the assembly script and PowerPoint for schools, as well as a preview of the accompanying film for children.
