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 

 "The two-fold end of the congregation is to combine the practice of the apostolic with the contemplative life. The sisters strive to be zealous for the Lord, whose glory they promote in seclusion of spirit and ministry to the aged and infirmed."

For the (evangelical) counsels, when willingly embraced in accordance with each one’s personal vocation, contribute in no small degree to the purification of the heart and to spiritual freedom.  Lumen Gentium 46
