Year of Consecrated Life
Religious Communities Dinner
On Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015, Religious Communities of the Diocese gathered for evening prayer, a talk on Consecrated Life, and a barbecue dinner hosted at St. Thomas the Apostle Parish, Waterdown. Br. Sean Sammon, FMS, a Marist Brother from New York who served for many years as Administrator General for his Community in Rome was the speaker. He reflected on the meaning of Consecrated Life today, its challenges, its hopes, and how it has re-shaped itself today since the Second Vatican Council. His words were uplifting and encouraging - but down to earth and practical.
Sister Elaine shared the history of the Sisters of Social Service.
