Year for Consecrated Life Coming to a Close
Year for Consecrated Life Coming to a Close
January 11th, 2016 by Wayne

The Year for Consecrated Life is soon coming to a close but it is not too late to celebrate the great work that men and women religious do in our Church and across the world. The example they provide to all the world of living for Christ and seeking the face of Christ in those most in need is one from which we can all draw great inspiration. Here in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati there are two great ways in which you can celebrate the closing of this special year:

January 17th @ 3 p.m., there will be a free concert at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains. The choir will be comprised of some 120 women and men religious as well as religious women and men instrumentalists. The concert will be approximately one hour in length and will be followed by a reception where vocation materials will be available.   This concert was the inspiration of Fr. Jeff Scheeler, OFM, Provincial of the Franciscan Friars, and put in the capable hands of Fr. Fred Link, OFM.

January 31st @ 11 a.m., Archbishop Dennis Schnurr will celebrate the closing mass for the Year for Consecrated Life. All are welcome and encouraged to attend and spend the last moments of this special year in prayers of thanksgiving and asking the Lord to continue to bless the great works these consecrated men and women are doing.
