World Day for Consecrated Life 2023

With great joy, we attended the Mass for Consecrated Life in the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Waterford on the feast of the Presentation of the Lord, February 2nd. It was a privilege to meet with the Religious of the Diocese and catch a glimpse into the prayer and activity of various communities present here in Waterford and Lismore, as well as joining in prayer with them in celebrating Candlemas- Christ as the Light of the Nations.

The Bishop spoke of our vocation as being that of ‘holding the Infant’ and our Religious lives as nourishing and growing the Body of Christ in joy, fidelity and hope. We pray that our lives may be a testament to that love of the Infant Christ in the Temple for the people of the diocese and in union with each consecrated Brother and Sister.
