EVERYONE ELSE: Please pass this on to young women, and pray for us please!
Day for women discerning a calling to consecrated Life (London)Saturday 2nd February 2013: The World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life @ St Aloysius parish, Somers Town, near Euston Station
On Saturday 2 February Westminster Diocese will be holding its second Day for Women (aged 18 to 40) discerning a possible calling to Consecrated Life. The first such day in February 2012 attracted over 30 women and was a day of great grace and blessing for all involved. February 2nd is of course the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord and has, for some years, been celebrated in the Church as the world-wide Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life – for those already living this vocation and for those discerning a call to it.
The patron for our 2013 day will be St Hildegard of Bingen, recently canonised and declared a Doctor of the Church by Pope Benedict. Drawing on St Hildegard’s inspiration, a variety of women, consecrated and lay, will reflect on how the world is enriched by consecration and what is at the heart of the consecrated life, in all its variety of forms.
