Diocese of Charlottetown: Opening of year of Consecrated Life

On November 30, the Diocese of Charlottetown officially opened the year of Consecrated Life with a solemn sung vesper service at St. Dunstan's Basilica led by Bishop Richard Grecco.

Following the vesper service, Sister Donna Egan shared a reflection on her vocation and on the charism of the Congregation of Notre Dame. The service closed with the singing of the official hymn: "Wake up the world".

The evening had been organized by a diocesan committee who are planning other celebrations during the year.
