Fr Paddy Rushe has unveiled the new Vocations app, billed as the first in the world, in a bid to attract new priests to his church.
The App is now available to download for free from iTunes App store. The Vocations App was developed by the Magic Time Apps company in Dublin.
It has been described as: “An original approach to assist current and future generations seeking to investigate and find information on vocations to the diocesan priesthood in Ireland”.
Features of the new App include connections to Twitter and Facebook as well as contact details and statistics on the 26 Catholic dioceses of Ireland.
One section of the new App deals with frequently asked questions from those interested in pursuing a vocation.
