Jesuit vocations



Today, 5th November, is the feast of All Saints and Blessed of the Society of Jesus. It is also the International Day of Prayer for vocations to the Society.

Fr Matthew Power SJ, the British Province's Vocations Director, is inviting everyone to join him in nine days of prayer for vocations in this country. He is also leading events for anyone interested in exploring Jesuit life - for further information, please contact him by email at matthew.power@jesuits.net or by phone: 0151 426 4137

"I wish to emphasize that our concern should not be numbers…We are not looking for people who will fill the gaps that we leave as we grow older, but rather for those who will be able to discern new calls and challenges and give everything for the service of Christ and the Gospel. "
Fr. Adolfo Nicolas SJ, Superior General of the Society of Jesus
