God calls us to encounter - the encounter which is born of the call, culminates in vision

As we step forward into the hopes and dreams of 2019, we pause to reflect on the role of Consecrated Women and Men in the life of the Church and the wider society.  Pope John Paul II set aside 2nd February, the feast of the Presentation in the Temple, as a World Day dedicated to Consecrated Life.  In his homily in 2019 Pope Francis spoke of the gift of encounter which is at the heart of Consecrated Life.
