Year of Consecrated Life

Pope Francis has declared that the Church will celebrate a special Year for Consecrated Life beginning on the First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 2014. The year is to conclude on February 2, 2016, which is the World Day of Consecrated Life.

Days with Religious

As one way of celebrating the Year of Consecrated Life in the United States, the USCCB has collaborated with three religious leadership conferences to create three “Days With Religious.” The intention of these Days is to help families learn about and experience the consecrated life of religious men and women. Activities will focus on sharing experiences of prayer, service and community life with those living a consecrated life.
