Assumption-USA Celebrates The Year Of Consecrated Life

Friday, April 10, 2015

It’s the Year of Consecrated Life!  Pope Francis calls the whole Church to recognize, affirm and encourage vocations to this way of life:  one that ‘wakes up the world’ and is, for all, a sign of the joy of being totally given to God and to the service of His people.

All four Assumption communities in the USA opened their houses to welcome people and celebrate the gift of consecrated life.  “Where there are religious, there is joy!” Pope Francis said.

See for yourself if this is true:  click here to view a video of the celebrations in each of our communities.

As Saint Marie Eugenie said, “I want to give myself, not lend myself, to Jesus Christ.”  What about you?
