Vocations Ireland at the Ploughing Championships

This week Br Liam and I were working with Vocations Ireland at the National Ploughing Championships in Athy. Over the last two days we met many wonderful people. The Vocations tent provided an opportunity for people to discuss a call to religious vocation, as well as a prayer space and an opportunity to make prayer requests (which will be sent to the Poor Clare Nuns). We handed out hundreds of rosary beads and Padre Pio relic cards and had a lot of good and interesting conversations.

  1. Hi Br. Martin & Br. Liam,
    I pray that your Vocation Campaign at the Ploughing Championship was fruitful? I trained for a number of years as a Seminarian but broke my back and had to call it a day. I wish I could have finished my studies! C'est la vi,
    as they say! Keep the faith and I will keep you in my prayers - please say one for me. I luckily now work as a Civil Servent. Keep in touch, God Bless, Mark C.
    I have GREAT devotion to Padre Pio.
