Sample Assembly

This week is Vocation Sunday, and the Gospel is Jesus’ teaching about living ‘life to the full’. This assembly shares insights from people with various vocations to inspire children to feel fulfilled in what they do both now and in the future, as well as offering an opportunity to pray for priests and those in the religious life.

I have come that you may have life, life to the full.
