Year of Consecrated Life:
A Day With the Religious
US Bishops and Major Superiors of religious orders declared
Sunday, September 13, 2015, as A Day With The Religious.
The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary invite everyone in our Freeport Community (St Thomas, St Joseph and St Mary) to join us in Solemn Vespers on Sunday, September 13, 2015, at 4:00pm, in St. Joseph Church. Join us to reminisce all the religious that taught us or family members in the past. Let’s pray and show support for the religious serving in our midst. Please, come and pray with us!
What is “Vespers?” Vespers are prayers that religious women and men promise before God to pray every day for our good. In fact, the sisters pray for us five times every day! Poor sisters, no vacation time from us sinners. Yet they happily pray for us. On this vespers, we can join our prayers with theirs and thank God we have such holy and pleasing prayers that go to God on our behalf. Thank you sisters!
