Celebration of Consecrated Life
March 25, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
On Saturday, March 25 at 3:30 P.M., the Diocese of San Jose will hold its annual Celebration of Consecrated Life at the Leontyne Chapel located at Bellarmine College Preparatory. Bishop Patrick J. McGrath will preside.
March 25, the feast of the Annunciation, is a fitting day for Religious to echo Mary’s “Yes” as she responded without reservation to God’s Call. Special recognition will be given to the jubilarians who also responded to a call – some for 25, 50, 60,70 or 80 years. This is something to celebrate!
Sister Rosalie Pizzo, Bishop’s Delegate to Religious, encourages family, friends, co-workers, pupils, past and present, who may or may not know any of the Religious listed, to join in this celebration. It is a way, not only of expressing gratitude for the many years these women and men have served the church, but also a recognition that all of us have answered a call, first at baptism and then in the various and unique ways that we have lived out this call.
The Liturgy is followed by a lovely reception at the Liccardo Center adjacent to the chapel. Here all gather to enjoy good food, share stories and renew old friendships.
