Vocations Ireland Report from the National Ploughing Event
Vocations Ireland at the Ploughing.
Vocations Ireland hosted a stand at the recent National Ploughing Competition (19-21 September). Over 200 000 people attended the annual event. Anne-Marie Whelan (Bon Secours), Sr Eileen O Connell O.P. (Dominican Sister) and Gerard Gallagher (AMRI) helped to co-ordinate many Congregations who came and volunteered to meet and greet many of the attendees. Fr Kevin O Rourke S.J brought the relic of Blessed John Sullivan and was very busy praying and blessing visitors to the stand. Spirit Radio also featured the Vocations Ireland stand on its show talking about the role of Religious in Ireland and Vocations. Thousands of prayer cards and religious gifts were distributed. Pope Francis in Evangelii Gaudium invited all of us to ‘smell the sheep’. Clearly our Religious Congregations were well placed to bring the Gospel message to everyone at the National Ploughing.
