Prayer to St Joseph for Vocations Sunday


Blessed St Joseph,


You listened in the depth of your heart to the call of God for you

to participate in his plan for the salvation of the world,

you responded with faith to that invitation.


Help me listen for the call of God in my life,

help me understand what the Holy Spirit is asking of me,

and help me be open to follow that invitation,

with courage and a trusting heart.


May your fatherly hand guide me and keep me safe.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Saint Joseph

Yesterday, 17th March 2022, we celebrated the Diamond Jubilee of Sr. Elizabeth of the Trinity, former Prioress of our Carmel, who entered on her 17th birthday and has been a valued member of the community ever since.


We were pleased to welcome Bishop David Oakley as chief celebrant of the Mass, in which Sister renewed her vows, along with two previous chaplains of the monastery.

It was lovely that nineteen members of her family, from as far afield as Canada, could also be there to share her special day.


Please join us in joyful thanksgiving to God for Sr. Elizabeth's sixty wonderful years of prayer and loving service here in Wolverhampton. Thank you.
