The World Day for Consecrated Life marks its 25th anniversary, on February 2nd, 2021. Many celebrations will no doubt take on virtual means in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, as many communities cannot gather as they would usually.
In this context, the Canadian Religious Conference is happy to offer a video to support the celebration of consecrated life. The video is constructed as a Liturgy of the Word, featuring songs, testimonies and invitations for communal sharing. There is also a moment to remember those we lost during the pandemic. The video alternates between French and English (with subtitles), as a sign of unity in our Canadian reality.
We hope this video helps you celebrate, encourages you and gives you hope.
A Facilitation Guide is available to accompany your preparation and use of the video. Click on the picture below to download it.
Do not hesitate to share the video in your communities, here and abroad!
Happy feast day to all consecrated persons!
Blessings on your commitment!
