Fresh from the nationwide coverage they received in BBC One's "Young Nuns", the Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal are to accompany Vocations Director Fr Paul Grogan in some end-of-term school visits this month. The schools which have arranged assemblies and class visits are St Mary's, Menston, Holy Family, Keighley, Corpus Christi in Leeds and St John Fisher's in Dewsbury. The sisters live in the former presbytery next to Corpus Christi Church in Leeds.
This year for the first time the vocations service will be asking students to complete a brief anonymous questionnaire to ascertain what proportion of our young people have considered the priesthood or religious life. "My sense is that a good number of teenagers feel drawn to one of these vocations and we want to check that out," said Fr Grogan.
