On Friday the 7th of June, at St Mary's Catholic Cathedral, the 2019 Mass for Consecrated Life was celebrated by Archbishop Anthony Fisher. The Mass was a beautiful occasion that saw over 100 religious from a variety of congregations and across the Archdiocese gathered to give thanks for the gift of religious life.
A special mention was made by Archbishop Fisher acknowledging the 300-year anniversary of the death of St John Baptist de La Salle. In the homily, we were reminded that the Church still looks to religious for "deep prayerfulness" and a "fidelity to Christ" during challenging times.There are many pathways available to young people in today's world.
There are also many ways to live out a commitment and a vocation. Religious life as a Priest, a religious Brother or a religious Sister has a variety of opportunities to live in community, work in the missions and grow in one's relationship with God and in service to the Church
