The Archdiocese of Glasgow appears to be reaping the rewards of a fresh new drive for vocations to the priesthood. The September edition of Flourish, the Archdiocese’s journal, has highlighted the increasing popularity of monthly evenings of discernment hosted by Father Ross Campbell, who is the Archdiocese’s vocations director and Catholic chaplain to the University of Glasgow.
Six men have already signed up for the first evening of discernment taking place on Friday 14 October and it is hoped that more will join. The evenings of discernment usually take place on the second Friday of each month and are designed to allow men to take a “gentle, first step into the waters of the priesthood, without any initial firm commitment.”
We must pray that these men, and hopefully many more, will respond positively to God’s call for them to be shepherds of His people.
