Celebration for the Year of Consecrated Life – August 1, 2015

During this Year of Consecrated Life, the Holy Father, Pope Francis, has invited Religious men and women, not only to strengthen the spirituality of communion in their own ecclesial community but also beyond its boundaries. Inspired by the Pope’s words: “Communion and the encounter between different charisms and vocations can open up a path of hope,” our community, Daughters of Mary of Nazareth, hosted a special event, on Saturday, August 1, 2015, with Mass and Marian Procession for many religious sisters and brothers who joined them for the celebration. This special celebration took place on Saturday, August 1st, at our convent, Saint Joseph of Nazareth. The main celebrant was the Episcopal Vicar of the West Region, Very Reverend Brian Kiely, along with 12 other priests concelebrating. Attendees represented 17 religious communities, who came together to celebrate with gratitude and joy, their communion with one another in the journey of consecrated life for the love of God and the service of His People.
