    Year of Consecrated Life Begins!

    YCL logoyear-of-consecrated-life-prayer-english-backToday, Advent and the new Church year begin. In 2013, Pope Francis declared that this year would be a year focused on Consecrated Life, specifically for celebrating the gift of the vocation and a call to “wake up the world.” Last week, he released a letter to all consecrated people addressing his wishes for the upcoming year. You can find the letter here. The USCCB has also released their plans for the year with three particular events and a prayer for the year.

    As Youth Apostles, we hope to take part in this wonderful opportunity. Our consecrated gathered last month to discuss it further in ways that we as consecrated can be renewed in our own commitments and ways in which we can tell others the good news of our vocation. Our hope is that young people will be open to the Lord’s call, “Come, follow me.” Please pray with us this year for the consecrated in our community, our brothers and sisters around the world, and all those discerning consecrated life. Keep posted for various events we will be planning for later this year!
