On February 2, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, the Church celebrates a World Day for Consecrated Life. This year, it is recognized in parishes on the weekend of February 6-7. 2021 is the 25th year for the world day, which celebrates the gift of religious consecration in the Church. Since the earliest days of Christianity, men and women have dedicated their lives more completely to Christ by professing the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. For more than eight centuries, the Franciscan Friars Conventual have participated in this awesome tradition of consecration and self-offering. Join the tradition; join us!
