Vocations Holy Hour - God calls young people to holiness


The Derry Diocesan Vocations team has organised a series of monthly 'Holy Hours' to mark the Columban Celebrations of 2021.

The 'Holy Hours' will focus on the example of men and women who have lived their lives by faithfully answering God's call. Like St Columba, these courageous disciples were not afraid to set out into the deep. They dared to say "Yes" to God.

Jesus knocks on the door of our hearts. Will we be brave enough to embrace the adventure in life which God wills for each one of us?
