World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life – Feb 6/7
World Day for Consecrated Life is celebrated on February 2nd however, it is observed in parishes on the Sunday after February 2nd. In 2021, this day will be celebrated in parishes on February 6-7, 2021.
A message from the Assembly of Women Religious in the Diocese of Calgary:
This year, due to Covid-19, we will need to celebrate the World Day of Consecrated Life in a different way. The Sisters will not be gathering as a group in a single parish. The religious of the Diocese of Calgary will not be gathering in one parish but plan to be present in our local parishes. We ask that the pastors or celebrants acknowledge the religious who are in your parish. Perhaps you would like to invite a religious to: read one of the Readings, or the intercessions or to speak to the people about the consecrated life. People may not be aware that we have several orders of men and women in our midst.
Please pray for all those who have made commitments in the consecrated life, and be sure to thank them on their special day. May they continue to be inspired by Jesus Christ and respond generously to God’s gift of their vocation.
