Celebrating the Year of Consecrated Life

Blessed Sacrament Province

The Year of Consecrated Life begins the weekend of November 29-30. In the USA, that’s Thanksgiving Weekend and for the Church, the First Sunday of Advent.

All over the world the Church will gather for the three-pronged focus of this year:

  • Renewal for men and women in consecrated life,
  • Thanksgiving among the faithful for the service of sisters, brothers, priests and nuns,
  • Invitation to young Catholics to consider a religious vocation.

Let us join with Pope Francis on Saturday, November 29, 2014 in an Opening Prayer Vigil.

On Sunday, November 30, 2014, we can join with our individual Diocese’s Opening Mass and invite our lay friends to join us.Check your diocesan websites for the place and time.
