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.

Quote of the Day

“Above all, by profession of the evangelical counsels, which frees one from what might be an obstacle to the fervour of charity, religious are communally a prophetic sign of intimate union with God, who is loved above all things. Furthermore, through the daily experience of communion of life, prayer and apostolate -- the essential and distinctive elements of their form of consecrated life -- they are a sign of fraternal fellowship.”
