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

“… religious should give pride of place in esteem to each other and bear each other's burdens. For the community, a true family gathered together in the name of the Lord by God's love which has flooded the hearts of its members through the Holy Spirit, rejoices because He is present among them. Moreover, love sums up the whole law, binds all together in perfect unity and by it we know that we have crossed over from death to life. Furthermore, the unity of the brethren is a visible pledge that Christ will return and a source of great apostolic energy.”
