| The Year of Consecrated Life
Pope Francis has declared November 2015 to February 2016 as the Year of Consecrated Life. In response to the declaration, various religious orders in our three-state area have created short videos about religious life and posted them on YouTube. The videos will change every month or two, so come back often to view the latest offerings.
