World Day Prayer – Consecrated Life
On Thursday, February 2nd, the Church celebrates the World Day for Consecrated Life
In the Archdiocese of Toronto we are blessed to have living and serving among us more than 900 religious men and women of 100 different religious congregations. This World Day of Consecrated Life is a wonderful opportunity for us to thank God for the gifts of these religious sisters, brothers and priests and to pray for God’s blessing upon them in their efforts to faithfully live the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience.
Bishop Wayne Kirkpatrick will preside at a special Mass on Sunday January 29 at 3:00pm at St. Paul’s Basilica, Toronto in celebration of the vocation and witness of these special men and women religious who are such vital and important part of our life and ministry of the Church in our Archdiocese. All are welcome to attend.
