Videos: In Their Own Words

In 2013, Pope Francis declared that a Year of Consecrated Life be celebrated throughout the world. It began on the First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 2014, and closed on the World Day of Consecrated Life, February 2, 2016. We asked women and men religious from different communities serving in our diocese to share their experiences.
