Good Shepherd Sunday: Today is Good Shepherd Sunday and Prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life.

Currently our diocese has two seminarians in Rome, two applicants on the pre-seminary course in Salamanca, and one on the inquirer's programme; one who will be ordained to the permanent diaconate in the autumn; and we know of some women presently discerning vocations to religious life. In his Vocations Letter Pope Francis has encouraged us to foster a culture of vocational discernment in our young so they hear what God wants of them. We keep this intention for all our young people in our prayers.

Diocesan Counselling Service for Catholics Married in the Catholic Church: Our diocese has arranged the services and pastoral ministry of our own Catholic Marriage Counsellor. If you are concerned about your relationship and feel you are both unable to reach a conclusion alone, it is likely that you will benefit from marriage counselling. The counsellor is there to maintain a neutral, non-judgmental position as the various problematic issues are discussed. Marriage counselling can help you gain perspective on your relationship. Expect help with the following: Communicate in a more constructive way; Learn why arguments escalate; Reflect on the past and how it presents in your current relationships; Learn the art of compromise. Negotiate and resolve conflicts in a healthier way. For information or advice please email in confidence counselling@rcdop.org.uk

Catholicism Faith Formation Programme: With creator and host Bishop Robert Barron, you will learn what Catholics believe and why while being immersed in the art, architecture, literature, beliefs and practices of the Catholic tradition. The Catholicism Faith Formation Program brings the beauty, goodness and truth of the Church to life so that you can better understand and share your faith.
