A message from Bishop John Keenan, President of Priests for Scotland

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest.”

Matthew 9: 37-38

Discerning a call to the Priesthood is never an easy task. Take the advice of Pope St. John Paul II, who on the occasion of his election as Supreme Pontiff said “Do not be afraid”. Find strength in your discernment by speaking to your Vocations Director, Parish Priest or seminarians you might know.
