PRAYER   FOR   VOCATIONS  by H. H. Pope  Francis.

LORD of the Harvest, BLESS young people with the gift of courage to respond to your call.  Open their hearts to great ideals, to great things.  INSPIRE all of your disciples to mutual love and giving— for vocations blossom in the good soil of faithful people.  INSTILL those in religious life, parish ministries, and families with the confidence and grace to invite others to embrace the bold and noble path of a life consecrated to you.  UNITE us to Jesus through prayer and sacrament, so that we may cooperate with you in building your reign of mercy and truth, of justice and peace. Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

CAFOD.   Myles Smith writes:~ Each November CAFOD holds Memorial Masses across England and Wales in honour of supporters and their loved ones who have died.  It is an opportunity to reflect on the lasting impact our loved ones have had on the world. All parishioners from Woodbridge and Framlingham are welcome to attend this year’s Mass at our Cathedral Church of Saint John the Baptist, Norwich, on Saturday November 17th at 12.30 p.m. Further details are on the church notice board.

NOVEMBER, MONTH OF THE HOLY SOULS:  Normally, during the month of November our daily Masses are offered for the people whose names have been submitted on the November dead lists.  Whenever possible, non-urgent Mass intentions will be held over until December or January so that Masses during November may be offered for the people named on the November dead lists.
