The Catholic Church will hold its annual celebration of WORLD DAY OF PRAYER for Consecrated Life this Tuesday and in intercessions at our weekend parish Masses.
In unity with the nations of the world, our Pope, our bishops and the faithful of Holy Mother Church, we see that this is a special time for every Catholic, every parish to celebrate the gift of Consecrated Life and pray for men and women discerning a consecrated vocation.
Instituted by St. Pope John Paul II in 1997, World Day of Prayer in conjunction with the Feast of the Presentation of The Lord, also known as Candlemas Day, which commemorates through the blessing and lighting of candles that Christ is the Light of the World. So, too, those in consecrated life are called to reflect the light of Jesus to all peoples.
To mark this Special Day following our 10am Mass we will have Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament until 12 Midday. Fr. Roshy, a Capuchin Priest, will give a Spiritual Reflection of Consecrated Life at 11.30am.
