Clery Training Fund
On Sunday, 7th May there will be second collection for the Clergy Training Fund


Wednesday, May 3rd, is the day allocated by the Birmingham Archdiocese to our Parish to pray for vocations.  

“Could you not watch one hour with me?”  
These were the words of Jesus, addressed to his apostles in the garden of Gethsemane. These were the words we heard  in the Gospel of St.Matthew, read on Palm Sunday; the words Jesus spoke only a short time before his arrest and the beginning of the agony of his passion and death. 

On May 3rd each of us is called to ‘watch’ one hour in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament - Jesus, truly present.  

Each of us is called to spend one hour in prayer for vocations to the priesthood. Could you ‘watch one hour’ with Him?

The list for watching is at the back of church.

Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the world!
We humbly beg of Thee to manifest in Thy
Church the Spirit Whom Thou didst so
abundantly bestow upon Thy Apostles.

Call, we pray Thee, very many to
Thy priesthood and to the religious life. And
may zeal for Thy glory and the salvation of
souls inflame those whom Thou hast chosen;
may they be saints in Thy likeness, and may
Thy Spirit strengthen them.

O Jesus, give us priests and religious
according to Thine own Heart! 

O Mary, Mother of Jesus! Obtain for fervent
souls the grace to hear and the courage to
follow thy Divine Son in the path of religious perfection. 

Queen of Apostles, pray for us. 
Queen of Virgins, pray for us.
