Jesus Christ told us: “Ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest”.

So let's not hesitate to talk about it, to pray for vocations and to promote a vocational culture in the Church. Let's also take the time to hear witnesses who tell us how happy they are to live their Christian vocation to the full!

I invite you to walk and pray in the diocese for vocations, during the May 1 pilgrimage to Saint Laurent sur sèvre! Come in large numbers to give thanks and pray on this day! May God bless each one of you. »
