The Year for Consecrated Life

“Show everyone that to follow Christ and to put His Gospel into practice fills your hearts with happiness.” – Pope Francis


Help spread the love and joy of the Catholic Faith as you teach your students about the year that celebrates a call to religious service. The Year for Consecrated Life, dedicated by Pope Francis, helps to promote and raise awareness for religious vocations. It started on the First Sunday of Advent, Nov. 30, 2014 and runs until the World Day of Consecrated Life on Feb. 2, 2016.

Throughout this special time, you can use some of the resources provided below to help answer Pope Francis’ call to “Wake the World” to the beauty of religious vocations and to show it with joy.
