The Joy of the Resurrection in the Faces of Our Diocese: Consecrated Life

This is the third of a series of posts showcasing Joy in the faces of our diocese.

By: Office of Communications

Oh death! Where is your sting? Oh hell! Where is your victory? Oh Church! Come stand in the light! The glory of God has defeated the night! These lyrics proclaim our Lord’s triumph over death. This week, we continue to bring this Joy of the Resurrection to light through the faces of our diocese. Today, we highlight Joy through those in consecrated life in our diocese, particularly during this unique season of the Year of Consecrated Life.

“The call reveals how much God loves you – to choose you to be His instrument of grace and salvation to the people He so loves. The response that gives honor and glory to God can be made only with a generous heart.” –Bishop Paul S. Loverde
