Saturday, February 2nd, the Church celebrates the World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life.
In the Archdiocese of Toronto we are blessed to have living and serving among us, more than 1000 religious men and women of over 100 different religious congregations. This World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life is a wonderful opportunity for us to thank God for the gifts of these religious sisters, brothers and priests and to pray for God’s blessing upon them in their efforts to faithfully live the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience.
All are welcome to come to a special Mass this Sunday, February 3 at 3:00 p.m. at St. Paul’s Basilica, Toronto to celebrate with and pray for these men and women religious who are such a vital and important part of the life and ministry of the Church in our Archdiocese.
