“The house of God, the Church, today no less than in the past, is adorned and enriched by the presence of the consecrated life.” Saint John Paul II, Vita Consecrata

2 New Postulants: Erica and Mary!

“The consecrated life is at the very heart of the Church as a decisive element for her mission, since it ‘manifests the inner nature of the Christian calling’ and the striving of the whole Church as Bride towards union with her one Spouse […] In contemplating the gift of consecrated life, the Church contemplates her own intimate vocation of belonging only to her Lord, desirous of being in his eyes ‘without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but holy and without blemish’ (Eph 5:27).”
Saint John Paul II

Thanksgiving: Service and Celebration

“Shout joyfully to the Lord, all you lands; serve the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful song Know that the Lord is God, He made us, we belong to Him, we are his people, the flock He shepherds. Enter His gates with thanksgiving, His courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name; good indeed is the Lord, His mercy endures forever, His faithfulness lasts through every generation.”
Psalm 100

Honoring Quincy Public Safety Personnel

Our New Convent

Celebration for the Year of Consecrated Life – Outdoor Mass and Marian Procession – 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.
