Time to Apply
Going by this picture from their website the Diocese of Austin has decided that young vocations is clearly the way ahead which is interesting because there was some discussion of promoting young vocations at our recent Vocations Directors' Conference.
Today we had our Discovering Priesthood Day at St John's Seminary, Wonersh - more about that when I get the camera's battery re-charged. Two of the young men present confirmed that they wanted to apply this year and a number mentioned that they would like to apply for their respective dioceses when they finish A Levels. It looks as if Southwark will have at least six applicants for next year. It would be great if we did. But just in case any readers of this Blog are hoping to apply but haven't mentioned it to me yet, I'd encourage you to confirm it to me soon. This year the Selection Conference is very early and we need to get all your paperwork in order in good time. So don't delay getting in contact. I wouldn't want you to miss out!
