Mass is held at the request of the North Staffordshire Vocations Promotions Group for vocations to the Priesthood.

We encourage all schools and home school pupils to login at the time of Mass to join with the Archbishop Bernard Longley and pray for the whole Archdiocese.

If Jesus was merely a human being, then priesthood wouldn't be important or necessary for human salvation; we'd merely be celebrating the death of a person. However, praise be to God, that is not the case.

Jesus, the one who gave himself up on the cross for the whole world, was truly the Son of God. Then he rose from the dead and commanded the apostles to go out and preach the Good News.

Therefore, in order to continue what Jesus asked, priesthood is essential to the Church. The ordained priesthood is a precious gift form our Lord Jesus.
