World Day for Consecrated Life
February 3, 2017 11:13 AM

In 1997, Pope Saint John Paul II instituted a day of prayer for women and men in consecrated life. This celebration is attached to the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord on February 2nd.  This Feast is also known as Candlemas Day; a day in which the candles used in church and at home are blessed, symbolizing Christ, the light of the world.  In parishes, this celebration of the World Day of Consecrated Life is transferred to the following Sunday in order to highlight the gift of consecrated persons for the whole Church.                                                              

We pray for all those who are discerning their vocation in life, particularily those whom the Lord is calling to consecrated life.  May they be given the wisdom to hear God's call and the courage to respond generously.
