Derry Diocesan Vocations Week 17th – 25th April 2021

The annual Derry Diocesan Vocations Week is celebrated this week, ending on Good Shepherd Sunday, 25th April. The theme for this year’s Vocations Week is based on “Patris Corde” (‘With a Father’s Heart.’), which is Pope Francis’ recent publication for the year of Saint Joseph.  You are encouraged to participate in the diocesan schedule of daily prayer and Mass, as well as devotional reflections based on the Angelus, Daily Examen and the Mysteries of the Rosary.  These resources are all available online at and .  On the five evenings of Monday, 19 April, through to Friday, 23rd April, Bishop McKeown will host a series of interviews with guests from throughout the diocese, discussing how they have answered God’s call to vocation. These twenty-minute interviews will be broadcast live online at 7:00pm each evening, followed by a broadcast of the celebration of the Daily Examen.  At 8:00pm, after 7.30pm Mass each evening, Bishop McKeown will lead the Rosary, before concluding with night prayer. Again, these live broadcasts can be viewed t and at the specific times.
