World Day for Consecrated Life

Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019 - Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019

Location: All Parishes

In 1997, St. John Paul II instituted this day of prayer for women and men in consecrated life. The World Day for Consecrated Life is attached to the feast of the Presentation of the Lord on Feb. 2. It will be celebrated in parishes Feb. 2-3 to highlight the gift of consecrated persons for the whole Church. For more information, visit the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Prayer for Consecrated Persons

God our Father, we thank you for calling men and women to serve in your Son’s Kingdom as sisters, brothers, religious priests, consecrated virgins, and hermits, as well as members of Secular Institutes. Renew their knowledge and love of you, and send your Holy Spirit to help them respond generously and courageously to your will. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
