The Sincerest form of Flattery
H/T to Fr Tim Finigan at the Hermeneutic of Continuity for news from Lancaster Diocese. My friend and fellow Vocations Director, Fr Manny Gribben, has taken a lead from us in Southwark and started his own Lancaster Vocations Blog. Even more good news: he is starting a Quo Vadis Group for the diocese.
Southwark started a Quo Vadis Group in response to the tremedndous interest in vocation generated among young people by the World Youth Day in Sydney. It gets a mention in both the Universe and the Catholic Herald this weekend. I'm very pleased to see that Lancaster is going to do something similar.
Fr Manny had a great project to promote family prayer for vocations a couple of years ago. We hope to be able to make use of his idea in Southwark fairly soon.
If you are a reader of this blog who lives in the north of England, do check Fr Manny's blog. There's a Vocations Day coming up in December. To find out more about what's happening in Lancaster contact Fr Manny on mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
