Vowed Life in the Church
This year, the celebrations of the World Day for Consecrated Life and World Marriage Day both fall on the weekend of February 7/8th.
In 1997, St. Pope John Paul II created the World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life. He asked that the entire church pray for all those men and women, living and deceased, who have vowed themselves to the ministry of the Church as sisters, nuns, brothers, and priests. I have invited the various communities of Religious Sisters who worship and minister in our parish, and the retired Augustinian Friars to join us at the 5:00pm Vigil Mass on Saturday, February 7th, so that we might acknowledge and thank them.
In 1983, the Catholic Marriage Encounter movement began World Marriage Day to honor “husband and wife as the foundation of the family, the basic unit of society. It salutes the beauty of their faithfulness, sacrifice, and joy in daily married life.” All married couples are invited to the 9:30am Mass on Sunday, February 8th, for our parish celebration of World Marriage Day.
Let us all continue to pray for each other.
