Good Shepherd Sunday, designated in 1963 by Pope Paul VI as World Day of Prayer for Vocations, is celebrated on the Fourth Sunday of Easter. This year, it will be celebrated on Sunday, April 22. The day provides an opportunity for the Church to publicly celebrate and pray for vocations to ordained ministry and religious life. The theme this year is “Listening, discerning and living the Lord’s call.”

To mark the occasion, eleven men currently preparing to be priests for the Diocese of Metuchen will visit parishes throughout Middlesex, Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren counties the weekend of April 21-22 to speak about their vocations. The list of scheduled seminarian parish visits follows:

Deacon Robert Pinnisi: Cathedral of St. Francis of Assisi, Metuchen 
Deacon Tholitho: St. Peter the Apostle, New Brunswick 
Andrew Prickel: St. Mary-Stony Hill, Watchung 
Gilbert Starcher: St. Ambrose, Old Bridge 
Tyler Fishbein: St. Augustine of Canterbury, Kendall Park 
Jun Joseph (Jay) Alquiros: St. James, Basking Ridge
