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

“In Mary the aspect of spousal receptivity is particularly clear; it is under this aspect that the Church, through her perfect virginal life, brings divine life to fruition within herself. The consecrated life has always been seen primarily in terms of Mary — Virgin and Bride. This virginal love is the source of a particular fruitfulness which fosters the birth and growth of divine life in people's hearts.”
