Days with Religious

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.

Charism:

"As an institute of consecrated life, we witness to the holiness of the Church through our religious vows, community life and apostolic service.  We follow the spirituality of evangelical childhood which has Jesus, Son of God and Son of Mary as our model, St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Louis de Montfort as our spiritual guides."

Quote of the Day

Let no one think that religious have become strangers to their fellowmen or useless citizens of this earthly city by their consecration. For even though it sometimes happens that religious do not directly mingle with their contemporaries, yet in a more profound sense these same religious are united with them in the heart of Christ and spiritually cooperate with them.  Lumen Gentium 46
