Day for Consecrated Life is celebrated on Sunday 2nd February – the Feast of the
Presentation of the Lord. This year, the Day for Consecrated Life will be celebrated in this
parish on Sunday, 23rd February at 11.00 am Mass.
Each year, the Catholic Church celebrates the World Day for Consecrated Life. Instituted by Pope John Paul II in 1997, the celebration is in conjunction with the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, also known as Candlemas Day, commemorating the coming of Christ, the Light of the World, through the symbolic lighting of candles. Similarly, consecrated men and women are called to spread the light and love of Jesus Christ through their unique witness of selfless service, such as caring for the poor, the contemplative work of prayer, or through their professional careers.
