THE DIOCESE of Clifton has launched a recruitment drive for the priesthood. A series of posters features a young Bristol man, James Finan, who was ordained to the priesthood in July.
The posters and leaflets promoting the campaign have been designed by a local Catholic graphic designer, Catherine Roperto. They have already been distributed to parishes and schools throughout the diocese, which covers the city of Bristol and the counties of Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Somerset.
The posters "reflect the stages of a man pondering and considering a vocation through to the brightness of his eyes as he offers himself for service as a priest," said Fr Robert King, vocations director.
