From the Carmelite Vocation Team
The 60th Annual World Day of Prayer for Vocations will be observed this Sunday, April 30, the Fourth Sunday of Easter. Because of the imagery in the passage from the Gospel according to John read on this day, the Fourth Sunday of Easter is popularly known as Good Shepherd Sunday. The purpose of this observance is to take seriously the Lord’s instruction: “The harvest is abundant but the labourers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out labourers for his harvest” (Luke 10:2).
