Open House - Meet the Religious

“I want to say one word to you and this word is joy. Wherever consecrated people are, there is always joy!” These words of Pope Francis capture the excitement of the religious men and women participating in this Year of Consecrated Life.   Religious houses around the country will be opening their doors on Sunday, February 8 for an Open House with Religious. Come and see our convents and meet religious sisters in your community.

Quote of the Day

All our Institutes are heir to a history rich in charisms. At their origins we see the hand of God who, in his Spirit, calls certain individuals to follow Christ more closely, to translate the Gospel into a particular way of life, to read the signs of the times with the eyes of faith and to respond creatively to the needs of the Church.   Apostolic Letter to All Consecrated People, Pope Francis, November 21, 2014
