Vocations and the Derry Diocese

If you have any questions about the priesthood, you will be pleased to hear that we are ready and willing to help you with any questions that you might have. It takes a great deal of courage to make that first step, we will deal with your queries in strict confidence and you can rest assured that you will be under no pressure nor obligation.

Priesthood represents one of the greatest challenges a person can ever decide to undertake. There are highs and lows, good times and bad times, but, at the end of the day, as a priest you can take satisfaction in the knowledge that the impact you have on people is profound - you make a difference.

Prayer for Vocations

Lord Jesus Christ,
While you walked the roads of Palestine,
you chose and called apostles
and confided to them the task of preaching the Gospel, of feeding your flock and ministering your Sacraments.
Grant that, in our day,
Your Church may not be deprived of holy priests who will share with everyone the fruits of your Passion and Resurrection.

Pope John Paul II
