At least a dozen diocesan and Religious priests serving in Singapore will share how they came to recognise God’s call to the priesthood in a series of vocation booklets being published by CatholicNews.

The first in the series, called Man of God, Man for Others, will be released on Good Shepherd Sunday, the same day that the Church observes World Day of Prayer for Vocations.

In it, Vicar General (Pastoral) Msgr Ambrose Vaz recalls how he was attracted to the priestly ministry as a young altar server and observing the life of his then parish priest, the late Paris Foreign Missionary Fr Louis Amiotte.

“The priest who said Mass and the priest who helped people. That whole identity was what I liked,” he said.

Families are encouraged to bring home a copy and use the prayers at the back of the booklet to pray for priestly and Religious vocations as well as for priests. They may also use it to talk about how God calls everyone to different vocations or careers.
