In the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart on Tuesday, February 2nd at 7:30 pm we will close the Year for Consecrated Life on World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life. This celebration is attached to the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord on February 2nd. This Feast is also known as Candlemas Day; the day on which candles are blessed symbolizing Christ who is the light of the world. So too, those in consecrated life are called to reflect the light of Jesus Christ to all peoples. Come join us in prayer!
