GET INVOLVED: YEAR OF CONSECRATED LIFE EVENTS
Pope Francis has declared the 2015 Liturgical year the year for consecrated life to raise awareness of the prayer & work of religious, to clarify the purpose & role of religious as well as raise awareness of the need of future religious vocations.
The USCCB (US Conference of Catholic Bishops) has specifically asked that religious host some events throughout this year to help fulfill Pope Francis’ vision. We hosted 4 events in 2015 in honor of the Year of Consecrated Life.
- Our community website has a blog post on the year of consecrated life with additional resources HERE.
- Sr. Alicia and Sr. Stephanie (see links) were featured on the Archdiocese of Chicago office for religious page as part of the Archdiocese’s celebration of the year of consecrated life.
- Sr. Alicia led a discussion on consecrated life on the Winds of Change radio show on January 19th! Listen HERE.
- We had about 90 religious at our evening of prayer and fellowship on May 8! Thanks for all who helped and attended! Pictures HERE.
